I photograph as pleasure, as practice, as meditation and as homage; for my sanity and my delight; because I must, because I have to; to teach from, to learn from, to look at, to remember.

Covello Portraits

In May and June of 2014 I was the 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 to see what I was doing and share their work and thoughts with me. I was inspired daily by the space, the people and the neighborhood.
