Artist's Statement

I am a photographer, a teacher and a scientist. I've lived in the Bronx in New York City for most of my life. I have been actively exploring photography for the last 8 years. I am mostly self taught, although I've taken a few photography courses and I'm a voracious reader. I seek the contrasts in life, the sign of nature in the city, the sign of man within the country,and the sights so small that most don't see. I use my photographs to capture those moments of life. I am interested in how humans intertwine with the world at large.
I use a digital camera to capture this world, and I occasionally use my imagination to mold the photos to display an idea. These can be seen in the photographic mosaics that I've made. And, sometimes, I just capture the moment because it is a snippet of life that I would like to hold on to.

Bio/Resume

The mosaic "Painting the Bronx" was accepted for publication by CrossBRONX, a showcase for Bronx writers and artists for its inaugural issue. http://crossbronx.wordpress.com/category/art-and-photography/
Two of my photographs were also published in the 2009 calendar for the Bronx Council of Environmental Quality. My photography was published for the months of March and October.

I have exhibited my work at Lehman College's Art Gallery for the photo exhibition "Straight Up!"
I also was invited to exhibit my work at the "Shooting the Bronx" exhibit as part of the Bronx Week celebrations. A summary of this can be found at the curator's blog.
