About the Galleries

 

I was given a Brownie camera when I was nine,

and have been making photographs ever since. I have photographed in faraway places—the Orkney Islands, Japan, Belize—and in places closer to home, including the Everglades, the American South, and boatyards along the Atlantic coast.

The pictures on this site are part of an ongoing focus on organic process, mutability, and closely-seen detail. What links them is a wish to articulate forms of wealth that do not, and cannot, appear on a consumerist gauge.

I love photography in part because it accepts elements and echoes of my other media—and because the camera is a terrific traveler. I work with a digital camera and an old, nearly vintage manual Nikon.

These days my photographs are collected and published, and make themselves useful in offices, homes and public spaces. To discuss a commission, publication, purchase, or collaboration, contact me via:

Have fun poking around—

and thanks for visiting.
