The Stage is Set

Propelled by a continuing search for the inner dialogue of the city environment and its people, I explore each neighborhood, searching for its own special character and history. One rich source I’ve discovered are store-front windows, a theater of dichotomies.

Inside the store’s window, the stage is set. All is still, frozen in time and space - a make-believe dream world. Outside, all is chaotic, unplanned, in uncontrollable motion – a cast of thousands of performers, each in their own fast-paced reality, swirling amid the cars and trucks and taxis. Fragments of a city’s evolving architecture, from many different eras, jockey for a spot on the stage. Further heightening the drama are the time of day, season of the year, and quality of light, which hide, reveal and complicate in unpredictable ways.

All that separates these two worlds is the glass, which for me, the photographer, unites them. I search for the angle and moment that brings it all together, and click the shutter.


New York Seen

These works may look like photo collages, but they are always single exposure photographs. Starting with reflective surfaces as my canvas, I employ a palette of color, light and shadow, line and form to fashion complex, multi-dimensional dreamscapes. Fragments of architecture, people, traffic, signs, mannequins and objects combine to form narratives about past and present, fantasy and reality, capturing, in a split second, conflicting and overlapping impressions of our fast paced contemporary world, with all its sounds, contradictions and confusion..

Message on the Wall

A series of moments, a crazy quilt of centuries, of buildings, both residential and commercial, along with the people who live and work and visit there, the traffic and advertising, the noise and luxury and grime - all the possibilities that make a city home to millions and a destination for millions more. Past and present weave in and out, filled with life and the lives of people passing by.

Southern Exposures

In shop windows and on the streets, South Florida has a vibe all its own. Brilliant sun, sultry nights, hot colors, swaying palms, glitter and glamor and grime, construction cranes and historic facades. Photographing the cultural landscape takes on new dimensions in the subtropical heat.

Back to Nature

Respite from the world, a hunger in all of us, time out to refresh our senses, breathe fresh air, hear the silence, the rush of water, the rustle of leaves, the sounds of birds and wildlife, to absorb the beauties of the natural world.
