Staten Island, NY



ARTIST STATEMENT: I use a mixture of artisanal and digital tools to create non-literal color photographs. I strive to make color a part of the artist's toolkit in photography the way it is in painting: personal, symbolic and lyrical, rather than factual, journalistic and literal. People are the main subjects of my images, and they are brought to the fore with creative color. The coloration of objects and backgrounds are determined by their function in the visual story, receding where necessary or brought to life with carnal color. I make symbolic sense where none existed before. The photography shown in this portfolio is all black & white analog photography that has been remastered digitally after being treated with chemical toners, studio oils and/or digital tools.
I am also interested in historical images, using glass negatives from the early years of photography, I restore and colorize them with digital tools.
As a writer and I touch on the same subjects, presenting real life themes in a somewhat skewered and personal landscape. My stories take place in a variety of landscapes, from Brooklyn to Romania.
