For over thirty years, I’ve photographed the urban environment. I’m particularly interested in the urban landscape of signs, symbols and graphic representation, along with curious or eccentric juxtapositions. Focusing on images without people or street action allows the images to be free-floating, without reference to a particular period or era. Close framing and shallow depth helps describe a world that exists within the four corners of the picture.

Prior to this series, I printed mainly in black and white. I started working in color to explore the visual and material erosion that comes with time, the elements, or human intervention: colors that have bleached or are reduced to blues and reds, surfaces that have cracked, are peeling, or have been vandalized.

Although I’m fully engaged in digital modes of presentation and communication, for me the physical photographic print is essential in conveying an image’s content, meaning and surface properties.
