Photo Book

My Photo Book celebrates the 35th anniversary of my photography from the mid-eighties to the present. I capture portraits of people on the streets of New York City and their enormous range of human emotions. The photographic journey then shifts away from the streets, and I begin to compose abstract, organic figures with driftwood, rocks and other materials found in nature.
