My passion is in photographing the interesting, offbeat characters and the places they occupy. I have been fortunate to work with wrestlers, burlesque dancers, bands, and sideshow folk. The performers I have photographed have allowed me access to their world, both behind the curtain and in front of it.
I enjoy shooting digital and black and white film. The delayed gratification and manual process of film photography fulfills my personal desire to put my hand into the finished work. It’s more than just taking an image, rather it’s about making an image.
I have been a finalist in contests run by FeatureShoot, The Jewish Museum, and the Brighton Beach Business Improvement District. My work has also appeared on the television show Raw Travels, the Coney Island USA website, Time Out New York, and the New York Times.
