Street Photography appeals to me for many reasons. The poetic compositions that are happening in everyday life offer unique possibilities that are rarely found in any other art form. Like the blues travelers, break dancers and jazz musicians that have made their mark in local communities and culture everywhere, street photography uses improvisation of its surroundings to capture a reflection of its time with the human story at the center.
I rely heavily on my own life experiences, earlier study of traditional art, my career as a sound designer and the lessons I've gathered from pioneers before me to influence my work. With a watchful eye one should be able to spot the likes of Saul Leiter, Fred Herzog, Ernst Haas, Gueorgui Pinkhassov and Wing Shya in my works.
My mission is not based on a single image or collection of photographs. I love street photography and do it because I enjoy it. As I continue to build a body of work I can see something coming together that is beyond my scope of understanding but ultimately I hope to publish works in books and museums. Until then I have this site.....
