Artist Statement

I did not intend to become a photographer. I studied art at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, and though I entered as a printmaker, then studied photography for years with William Gedney, I graduated as a graphic designer. I was a Creative Director in NYC designing brand identities when the iPhone launched, and it brought me back to the camera. My interest is making - and viewing -  prints that tell a story.

I have two distinct bodies of work - real & imagined photographs:

    REAL: a record of the real world (with a Jersey accent)

    IMAGINED: building dioramas to create an image that I want to see

Both have stories to tell.
