I am very interested in pairings and sequences of photos. How the left influences/changes the right and vice versa. And how they work together.
Photographs made in the Spring of 2014 and 2015 during an artist's residency.
Portraits of people who were clients of the Leonard Covello Center for the Aging, in East Harlem.
Portraits of creative persons over the age of eighty, in their home and studios. They are the artists and intellectuals of my parents’ generation, whose wisdom and insight are important to our nation.
These photographs were made during the three years when I was a Hospice Volunteer to Anne, a woman in her late 80s who was dying of cancer, at her home in Greenwich Village.
St. Mark’s Church-in-the-Bowerie is situated in lower Manhattan on Stuyvesant Street, where East 10th diagonally meets East 9th Street. Geographically, by the compass, it is one of truest East-West cross streets in the borough.
Photographs of transvestite waitstaff, made while I was a Tarot-card Reader at Lucky Cheng’s, an East Village restaurant.
I shot with a plastic “Holga” camera with black and white film. Although it has only three ranges of focus, and one shutter speed, it was very quirkily reliable in bright sunlight.
In 1987 I was invited to be part of a group of photographers working on Ellis Island during its reconstruction.
I moved to Austin, Texas in 1978 and stayed until 1985. It was a time of great personal and artistic growth, a time of much trial and error.
Photographs made with a Rolleiflex during the summer of 1977. I travelled solo through Tuscany and Umbria for six weeks.
