When my grandmother handed me a Kodak Brownie camera at age six, I was hooked. I also inherited her wanderlust, so naturally I’m passionate about travel photography.
I entered the darkroom as a high school senior, honing my skills both in college and later at the International Center of Photography, where watching my photographs come to life under the muted red lights of the darkroom was a welcome break from my day job as an attorney, a chance to let my creative spirit free.
These days, I work as a writer and photographer. Although the computer is my “darkroom,” and my published work often relies on the bright colors of the places I visit, I still love black and white photography: it offers a welcome creative challenge, an opportunity to distill an image down to its essential lights and shadows.
My fine art photography has been featured in galleries throughout the New York metropolitan area as well as at the Museum of the City of New York. See my new Exhibits page for the latest.
I am a serious photographer. But I believe that art should also be accessible and fun. So, besides selling fine art prints through Crated and Fine Art America, I offer some of my images on home decor such as pillows, on tote bags, iPhone and other smartphone cases, and even stickers, leggings, mugs, T-shirts and other gifts and goodies on redbubble. For the European market, I sell photographic prints through Photo4Me.
