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 Alive, Our Town, Bijutsu Techo, The Shin Bijutsu Shinbun, Hyperallergic, 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 Boom, Life Force, In Public, Edge of Humanity, My Modern Met, Kottke.org (blog), Valerie Jardin Photography (podcast), Dodho, 6sqft, Resource, Artwort, Daily Mail, and Exibart.
It is in the following university libraries: Columbia' Avery Library of Fine Arts, Yale University, Harvard University, New York University, Brown University, Johns Hopkins University, Cornell University, Fairleigh Dickinson University, Wake Forest University, University of Chicago, New Jersey City University, School of Visual Arts, University of California, San Diego, Duke University, UCLA, Stony Brook University, Deakin University (Australia), and University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
