Providence, RI, United States
I am a free-lance publication photographer/film-maker, based in Providence, Rhode Island. I specialize in intercultural communications and the use of light and shadow to enhance visual narratives.
My past assignments have been for Life Magazine, National Geographic and the New York Times Magazine among others. I produced photo-essays for the award winning Philadelphia Inquirer Sunday Magazine. I was an invited photographer on "America 24/7," the largest professional photo book project ever undertaken.
My video work consists of short, dramatic, story-telling videos videos using ambient sound, dramatic compositions, careful use of focus, tight editing, minimal text and lots of atmosphere so the viewer experiences the story as if they are right there.
I customize motion coverage using stills, video, time-lapse animations and audio to work perfectly with any project. Building on my decades of photojournalism experience, I am self-directed and unobtrusive.
Portfolios of my work have appeared in American Photography, Camera and Darkroom, Communication Arts Photography Annual, Graphis, Photo District News, Photo Magazine, Photographers International and Zoom.
My work has been featured in one-person exhibits at Brown University, U.C. Berkeley and Harvard University. My work has been part of group exhibitions at the Houston FotoFest and the Visa pour l'Image Festival in Perpignan.
My photo-essays have been funded by fellowships from Nikon/NPPA, the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, the MacArthur Foundation's Program of Research and Writing on International Peace and Cooperation, the Alicia Patterson Foundation and the Fulbright Foundation. My project on the pesticide poisoning of California farm workers was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize by the Philadelphia Inquirer Sunday Magazine.
