My relationship to my environment is voyeuristic. I search for textures, compositions and subjects that reflect the uniqueness of my surroundings. Most of all, I look for things that elicit a personal and emotional response.
I am currently using a medium format camera with a ground glass viewer, I am able to carefully compose, with a square, the image I hope to capture. In the darkroom, I am drawn to Hand Coated Palladium Prints, for its softness, and long range of tonality to complete my vision.
My first experience with print photography was with a pinhole camera. This project was a self portrait study. I exhibited photographs as an installation with 500 faces in Brooklyn and Detroit with Robert Oehl.
New York has always been a rich environment for observation. Life is on the streets.
