I am a witness…
Photography is my passion. Fortunately, I was born in the city that I love - New York City. On a good day, I move with the rhythms of the city and feel connected to its soul, spirit and people. The camera is the tool that allows me to capture moments before they transform.
Film and photographs have always fascinated me. My father was an amateur photographer and filmmaker. I took my first pictures with his Kodak Brownie. I created art all my life and considered myself a painter. As fate dictated, in 1967 I was introduced to Harold Feinstein (photographer/teacher 1931-2015), that is when I rediscovered my love of photography. Harold became a great inspiration, friend and mentor. I also had the good fortune to study with many other inspiring photography teachers, including Philippe Halsman and Lisette Model.
I have experimented with a variety of cameras, lenses and formats, spending countless hours in the darkroom. Developing an image felt like magic. Today, I look for that magic in a new way as I work with digital cameras.
My work has been shown in galleries and museums in the United States and has been published both here and abroad.
