I AM AN INDEPENDENT PHOTOJOURNALIST AND
PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER BASED IN NEW YORK CITY.
I see New York City as a visual specimen. My camera becomes the microscope and I become the scientist. The city has all of the elements necessary for interesting and compelling images. Some of theses moments are fleeting and others static. It is the perfect subject for thorough examination and documentation. As a former private investigator in NYC, I attempt to capture that point in time without alerting the subject or disturbing the settings, in pursuit of the "decisive moment" while photographing as candidly possible. When photographing a place without people, I focus on the lived in grittiness of the surroundings that still suggest the presence of people. In addition to reportage/news images I aim to document and exemplify the essence of people and their surroundings in any setting, and in doing so I hope to contribute to the rich visual history of the past and present.
