My work is about revealing an interpenetrating world.
To that end, I use no manipulation whatsoever.
I work with single-use and iPhone cameras because their limitations give me what I want,
images that are close to the way our minds work.
I want to encourage in myself and in others a kind of perception that leads to deeper reflection, which in turn leads to thinking about what matters personally and socially.

New images taken from March to now, the time of the pandemic. (Soon to be a book).
Almost all the Los Angeles Museums had closed, and The Getty Museum would close the next day.
For a while I walked through Los Angeles’ empty streets, seeing mostly what was desolate.
Then I started to see a poetry that I hadn’t always seen in more populated times.
And the light kept changing.
I became fascinated by two buildings close to where I live in Downtown Los Angeles. One was the abandoned L.A. Times, the other was CalTrans headquarters. Both have niches along their outside walls that hold faded photographs. I stood in front of these at various hours of
the day, choosing a detail and letting what was behind me enter the frame.
Sometimes I drive to Point Fermin, the southernmost point of Los Angeles County.
Sometimes I drive to the north of the County, as here in Green Valley.
And I hope and despair, with both in my lens. August, 2020
