I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. Growing up we didn't have a lot, so when, on my 8th birthday, I received my first camera, I discovered that I could see the world in new and exciting ways. A flower growing through a crack in the sidewalk, an eldery woman resting with her shopping cart, had new meaning. I realized I could tell a story with my pictures.
To me a photograph is more than the sum of it's parts. Each picture should be able to convey a story, an emotion, much the way an oil painting or water color does. Each picture should exhibit it's own unique personality. A sculptor was once asked what he was going to create out of the block of marble in front of him. He answered " I won't know until I start chipping away at the marble and the form within reveals itself to me". So while others are looking at the marble block I am looking for the form within trying to get out.
My hope is that you will join me on my journey of discovery. To travel within, around and through each piece and open yourself to the stories and emotions it's trying to convey.
Thank you for your interest
