When people tell me that I am so lucky to live in a city with so many faces, I tell them art is in the details. When people tell me that I have a great eye for images, I give credit to the city.
As a self-taught photographer living in New York City, I typically choose everyday objects and people as my inspiration. Through these images, I seek to engage the audience in sometimes subtle, oftentimes whimsical, exercises in seeing, thinking, and feeling. I am drawn by settings that reflect the transience of life, the beauty in its wear and tear, and the innately human ability to find uplifting gestures during difficult times or within everyday distractions.
The pattern that emerges from my work across the years is one of simplicity, natural depth, and clear-cut structure. As a classically trained and professional musician, I find art all around me in the same way as I enjoy shaping music from the sounds of the city and playing with words.
