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, and older work from Providence, Chicago, and the desert Southwest. Please write to to hear about upcoming events.


May 19–September 10, 2017: I'm participating in "Shifting Perspectives: Photographs of Brooklyn's Waterfront," the inaugural show at the Brooklyn Historical Society DUMBO. Works by Berenice Abbott, Bruce Davidson, Morris Engel, Mitch Epstein, Stanley Greenberg, Michael Kenna, Shai Kremer, Jeff Chien-Hsing Liao, Lynn Saville, Harvey Stein, Todd Webb, and others.

January 20–29, 2017: A few big prints from the Domino series will be in the Coda show, the Front Room Gallery's Williamsburg farewell exhibition. Front Room is moving afterwards, chasing the cheap rents and gritty charm of Manhattan.

Fall, 2017: My book, Brooklyn’s Sweet Ruin: Relics and Stories of the Domino Sugar Refinery will be published by Schiffer Publishing. More soon.

More about the Domino Sugar project in Brooklyn Magazine, Architect Magazine, CurbedNY, the Daily Mail UK, and Animal New York.
