Ensemble shoot, 2008

My work is both deeply personal and anthropologically rich, often stemming from an all-consuming curiosity about a specific person, community, or place. The subjects of past projects span all corners of the human experience, from the devoted brothers of a dying religious order, to the residents of a Brooklyn YWCA, to the inhabitants of a rapidly developing neighborhood in Washington, DC.  Ultimately, my projects are generated by these relationships, taking the form of a site-based installation created from a variety of media. I have received funding for my public projects from the Brooklyn Arts Council, The NYC Department of Cultural Affairs, The Santa Fe Art Institute, and the Pollination Project. My photographs have been published in various publications, including the New York Times Magazine, New York Magazine, and the Washington Post. I am on the faculty of Parsons the New School for Design and I live with my family in Brooklyn, New York.
