Siberia, A Bar, 1997, digital Fujix prints on archival photographic paper



As an award-winning New York based photographer, I find myself after twenty five years captivated by two visual inspirations. As a born and bred Mid-Westerner the first is nostalgic, where my imagination is stirred by feelings from a childhood spent on the shores of the Great Lakes: the beauty of natural light, the simple moments and genuine emotions of carefree youth and innocence. At the same time I am a tried and true New Yorker, more than ever attracted to the energy of urban landscapes and its people. I strive to find the cinematic in my subjects, rejecting inert, sculptural photography for something more kinetic, alive, and ultimately, authentic.
