HONORS & EXHIBITIONS

Biography

Provocative architectural scenes continue to command my attention and compel me to photograph their soothing abstract and geometric qualities. Particularly in urban surroundings, I use my camera to peer beyond the obvious characteristics of these strong graphic settings and expose elusive hints at story snippets caught midstream.

Triggered by COVID-19, the topsy-turvy trajectory of everyday life grew ever more unpredictable, canceling my once-frequent urban photo safaris. So, I started shooting a wider range of subjects closer to home and discovered different vantage points helped me tackle the increasingly blurred lines of demarcation between what is considered “real” and what could be called “imagined.”

I’ve dubbed these experiments “Reality in Flux” -- a loosely woven photographic series that explores “change” and “ambiguity” in various forms.
