The Charm of Reflection



I began exploring photography in the 80’s. My passion for black and white imagery led to the creation of a studio and darkroom in my living space, which became my school for independent learning.

My earliest interest was portraiture, with an in-depth examination of women and children. From this focus grew, Telling Tales, a mythology of the feminine, and Intimacies of Childhood, an ongoing visual account of children’s relationships within the school environment. This was the springboard for Childlife Photography, and to commercial assignments with an emphasis on portraiture and children.

In the years that followed, my interest in children expanded to include teaching photography to students ages 10 through 18. Under the aegis of Young Audiences, New York, my work found favor in both private and public education as well as a meaningful role in Special Education.

As a photographic artist, I continued to evolve in both my interests and my methodology. My weekends in Sullivan County, New York, presented the opportunities to explore the rural landscape and to expand my photographic skills to include infrared, hand coloring, and color photography. Regardless of the camera format, or whether the image is in color, black and white, digital or analog, my guiding principals remain, a deep awareness and understanding of light, composition and the capacity of discovery to empower imagery.

At the heart of my photographic work over the past fifteen years has been my fascination with Manhattan’s cityscape, and the constant evolution of commerce within its space.

Between 2003 and 2009 I had 3 solo exhibitions at OK Harris Works of Art, entitled, Mecca or Madness, Billscapes, and Deconstruction. My cityscapes have received recognition through national and international juried competition, and through public and private acquisition. In 2010, I was honored by the Aaron Siskind Foundation with an IPF Fellowship for my body of work, entitled, Billscapes.

Of recent, I have returned to my roots, experimenting with film and toy cameras, Holga and Diana. Within their simplicity, I have found great freedom to allow the spontaneity of discovery, and a trust in my own
intuitive vision to direct and inspire my images.
