I am a New York City based photographer,and began my career working with luxury and fashion accounts as an agent for Helmut Newton and Mario Testino amoung others. I have a production, casting, location, creative, and business background. I love photographing and find myself trying new ways of seeing, and experimenting through mixed media.
My first Book, "Babies & Dogs" is a photojournalistic project, with a pop art bent.
The images give you a glimpse of their special bond. The families in the book were cast on the streets of NYC as I walked the city, with people allowing me private entry into their homes. It was photographed street style indoors, as I was unaware of what I might find. The unpredictability added to the suspense and spontaneity of what I would capture.
My second book "Cosmic Beauty", is once again an experiment with traditionally enhanced mixed media. The name came to me because beauty is universal and captures the spirit of the cosmic force surrounding us all. Finding beauty in unexpected places is uplifting, and anything that can make us wonder is worth taking a second look.
I am working on a third book ”Lead me to your door”, once again using mixed media, incorporating my love of the surreal, with double and triple images that intertwine romanticism, architecture and nature.
