I am a New York City fine-art photographer and photojournalist, based in Lower Manhattan. In 2003, after moving to Battery Park City I began an ongoing project to document my surroundings, focusing on New York Harbor, recording the sublime beauty and dramatic weather, as well as the architecture and people of Lower Manhattan.
From a vantage point forty stories above the City, I could find drama or news by looking out my window. Everything from dramatic electrical storms, to the errant use of Air Force One flying around the Statue of Liberty.
My work has appeared in publications and on television worldwide including National Geographic, Popular Photography, New York Daily News and on NBC News and the BBC.
My most recent exhibit (August 2012), was a a seventy foot long series of seven transparencies, that were installed in Lower Manhattan as part of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s Arts for Transit program. The exhibit ‘Edge of Manhattan’ which was on display for over a year in the Bowling Green subway station and was preceded by one-man shows at the New York Mercantile Exchange and the Kim Foster Gallery in Chelsea, New York.
