Biography 

A native Brooklynite and living in Manhattan for many years, I've been shooting New York City since the dawn of the 1970s.

Wandering the streets with my 35mm cameras loaded with b&w film, I consider myself an urban observer. I try to capture the city's environment - structures, signs and, most of all, the fleeting moments of people on the streets that will soon disappear into thin air.

My photos have appeared in numerous publications, including Street Photographers Notebook, SHOTS, New York AliveOur TownBijutsu Techo, The Shin Bijutsu ShinbunHyperallergic, and Art Asia Pacific, and illustrated such exhibition catalogs as YES Yoko Ono, Over the Edges, and Hori Kosai.

Recent exhibitions include Week of Protest, a group show at Central Booking Gallery in New York City (January 2017), and my book launch-exhibit at H.P.F, Christopher (July 2017).

My photobook, Today's Special: New York City Images 1969-2006, has been published by Coral Press Arts in June 2017.

It has been featured online in: Creative BoomLife ForceIn PublicEdge of HumanityMy Modern MetKottke.org (blog), and Valerie Jardin Phorography (podcast).
