Welcome. I'm a Brooklyn, New York-based artist who photographs the urban and cultural landscape. This site features projects made in New York, and older work from Providence, Chicago, and the desert Southwest. Please write to to hear about upcoming events.


June 16–July 16, 2017: One of my prints from the Domino Sugar project will be on display in the Front Room Gallery's Summer Sampler show, in their new Lower East Side space. Lots of work by 16 other art stars from Front Room's stable. Opening receptions Friday, June 16th 7–9PM

More about the Domino Sugar project in Brooklyn Magazine, Architect Magazine, CurbedNY, the Daily Mail UK, and Animal New York.

May 19–September 10, 2017: I'm participating in "Shifting Perspectives: Photographs of Brooklyn's Waterfront," the inaugural show at the Brooklyn Historical Society DUMBO. Works by Berenice Abbott, Bruce Davidson, Morris Engel, Mitch Epstein, Stanley Greenberg, Michael Kenna, Shai Kremer, Jeff Chien-Hsing Liao, Lynn Saville, Harvey Stein, Todd Webb, and others.
