About

“Pay attention. It’s all about paying attention.” –Susan Sontag

What I love about photography is that it’s all about noticing. Like recordings of music, photography captures the ephemeral and the momentary. Before there were recordings and photographs, how did we tell each other what we noticed in the world?

I got most of my formal training in photography during the early 1990s at the University of California Berkeley extension, where I had the good fortune to study with the master printer and documentary photographer Frank Espada, among others. In 2001 and 2002 I was a member of the Bay Area Photographers Collective. I’ve participated in San Francisco’s Open Studios off and on through the years, and have exhibited in galleries, art centers, and cafes. My photos are in private collections in San Francisco, New York, Paris, and elsewhere.

I shoot both digital and film, black-and-white as well as color, using my iPhone, a Holga, and a DSLR. I’m interested in “evidence” of people–what they leave on view, accidentally or on purpose–and in time and chance, and in the disconnect between thought/imagination and reality.

All my work is available for sale and for show. Prices available on request.
