ABOUT ME 07/2020
I’m a contemporary photographer and a native of Long Island. I grew up in Suffolk County on the north shore, where many of my images are made. My work is about light on landscape, memory and the ordinary things we see in passing. I see photography as one part documentary, on part my need for aesthetics and one part therapeutic. Edward Hopper has been a primary influence since H.S. Later on, Walker Evans, Robert Adams and the Hudson River School Painters became favorites too. Their work is based around memory, progress, regional architecture and a transformed landscape. These are the things that interest me.
When I moved back home in 2014, I concentrated mostly on nature, the sea and rocks, Americana and the rural and historic east end because those were the things I remembered most. More and more, I began to pay attention to how much change has occurred. In response, I started to pay work my images into different series - the old, the new, the altered, the banal, suburbs, the Hampton's, places in decline and habitats competing with nature.
I display iPhone photos alongside 35mm images. While these images may not offer the same resolute sharpness, the subject offers appeal. iPhone images can be printed to 11 x 14, 12 x 18 or 16 x 20 without much loss of detail.
Please inquire if you're looking for a particular type of image. Use the contact form or shoot me an email. I sell/ship photographic paper, canvas, metal and acrylic prints in standard
