About

The archive of my photographs is a collection of pictures about age, place, and tradition, with a focus on human ecology, and nature. This archive includes images made with plastic and traditional film cameras, pinhole, alternative processes, and a variety of digital photography tools that I use as I move through the world.

The urban surroundings of my childhood in Queens, NY continually inform my work. There, nature seemed mediated and compromised by human intervention – including my own. I am exploring the complicated relationships people have with the natural world. My photographs are quiet comments on the disquieting evidence of how humans are playing with our planet.

I am a photographer, bookmaker and educator. I make my home in Rhode Island where I teach photography and digital art. I have a BA in Art from Union College and an MFA in Visual Studies from the Visual Studies Workshop in Rochester, NY.
