New York City Pairs of Squares

As a teacher of photography and book arts, 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. The photographs in these pairs were made in different places at different times.  My challenge is to edit and combine them so that the results are more interesting, mysterious or amusing than the two by themselves.

East Harlem Diptychs

These photographs were made in the Spring, in 2014 and 2015 while I was an Artist-in-Residence at the Carter Burden/Leonard Covello Senior Center on East 109th Street. They were taken in a very limited and prescribed area, on the four square blocks of my varying route from the subway to the studio and back again.

Covello Portraits

As an Artist-In-Residence at the Carter Burden/ Leonard Covello Center for the Aging in East Harlem, I made many portraits of the people who were clients of the Center, while they were taking classes, or when they would drop by my studio.

Pocketbook of Drag Queens

From 1995 through 2001, I worked as a Tarot-card Reader at Lucky Cheng’s, an East Village restaurant that employs transgender waitresses and drag performers. I was able to document some part of the lives of the people who surrounded me. 

Holgas, 1996 - 2002

Here is a description of your company. Proin ex id consectetur lobortis. Aliquam, velit vel faucibus dapibus, augue justo ullamcorper turpis, nec convallis metus nunc vel turpis.

Austin, Texas

I moved to Austin, Texas in the fall of 1978. It was a time of great personal and artistic growth, a time of much trial and error. What remains from that time (besides memories) are some photographs, made with a plastic Diana camera and a Leica M3.
