Welcome to mid-life in the Middle Kingdom - with a camera. That's me in a nutshell...

I'm an American documentary photographer and for the past 10 years I've been based in China.

The photographer Robert Heinecken once said, "Many pictures turn out to be limp translations of the known world instead of vital objects which create an intrinsic world of their own. There is a vast difference between taking a picture and making a photograph."

I am trying to learn how to make photographs.

China is sometimes stunningly beautiful, sometimes tragically ugly, but rarely is it boring. I hope these images afford you a peak behind the red curtain...
