Artist Statement

I consider myself a street photographer; my camera is always on hand and I shoot at anything that strikes my interest in public places. I constantly pay attention to people, composition and lighting.

My love for New York City has always motivated me. The city offers a plethora of visual stimuli and my goal is to capture this visual bounty. I have had a strong commitment to street photography since 1988. I capture reality – by using a wide-angle lens and avoiding postcard compositions. I seek the raw, claustrophobic crowd and congestion of the city, not just with people, but also inanimate objects. I relish people or objects that get in the way of the otherwise “perfect” shot.

Over the years, I have developed a style that combines the finesse of fine art with the grit of street photography. Unusual captures, composition and angles burst through my city scenes.
