I’ve been an artist/photographer for over 35 years. I received my BFA in Photography from the San Francisco Art Institute and have worked as a portrait and commercial/stock photographer, filmmaker, videographer, and a conceptual fine artist. Often, especially with my landscape work, I embrace what I refer to as the ‘intimate landscape’. I’m interested in the worldly as well as the ‘spirit’ landscape.
Recently I’ve been working with the Power of Hope Kibera (pohk.org), a non-profit liquid soap/behavior change community organization in the Nairobi slum of Kibera (Kenya). Out of this experience has come the series Kibera: a Slice of Heaven.
My work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and is in collections in Beijing, the Asia Society Museum in New York, Hamburg Kennedy Photographs, and MIT’s Islamic Architecture Library.
