domino sugar refinery project

Welcome. I'm a Brooklyn, New York-based artist who photographs the urban and cultural landscape. This site features projects made in New York's hinterlands, including the subway and the DUMBO and Bushwick neighborhoods of Brooklyn (pre-gentrification and all that). Older work from Providence, Chicago, and the desert Southwest. Please write if you'd like to hear about upcoming events.
