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.
April 2015: Have a look at the project page for my upcoming book, Sweet Ruin: The Brooklyn Domino Sugar Refinery. Please Like! A crowdfunding campaign is coming soon.
June 2014: Selections from the Domino Sugar project in CurbedNY, the Daily Mail UK, ArchDaily, Artholics, Untapped Cities, and Gizmodo. Also a mention from Creative Time, in conjunction with Kara Walker's amazing installation.
October, 2013: I'm almost done photographing for my book on the long-defunct, soon-demolished Domino Sugar Refinery in Brooklyn. Have a look at this amazing place. More details soon.
