I am a transplant from New York City, and I've fulfilled a lifelong dream by moving to New Orleans in 2005. I was a Contributing Photographer at Life Magazine in the 80’s, living in New York City and completing photo assignments all over the world. My work has appeared in Time, People, National Geographic, GEO, Stern, Paris Match, Newsweek, US News and World Report, New York Magazine, the Village Voice, Readers Digest, Sports Illustrated, Fortune, Business Week, Forbes, Graphis, Jazz News, Next American City, and the New York Times Magazine, as well as the cover of Popular Photography. My work on Coney Island was recently featured in the New York Times photography blog “Lens.” In 2006 I was a finalist in the W. Eugene Smith Grant competition for a project on life at the edge of the world’s oceans.
My mission is to capture the vitality of the human experience and to present it on paper in a visually compelling manner. As a photographer I work with daily life, ritual, and celebration within which I look for moments of insight or higher meaning. I seek to create iconic images that are immediately recognizable as illustrating an idea, a place, or an event.
