ABOUT ME

"Photography has one leg in painting and one leg in life

but the two things must be combined."   

-Brassaï-

I began studying photography in 2015 after years as a fine art painter. Schooled in the essential elements of painting -- color, light and composition -- it was not a difficult transition.  Whether inside the studio or out, the artistic tool box was the same.

 

As a native New Yorker, the genre of street photography was a natural fit.

I had always been captivated by the hum and buzz of the street; the energy of unremitting commerce; the mash-up of peoples and cultures. With a camera in place of a paint brush, I could capture the endlessly fascinating drama unfolding in the public sphere.
