Artist’s Statement

I am a photographer, musician, and writer. I make photographs of what surrounds me, filling in the interstitial spaces of photojournalism, street photography and fine art—allegiance free, without privileging either form.

I seek to recount a story with every photograph. My approach is informed by a multitude of disciplines. Omnipresent influences include the work of Gordon Parks, Richard Avedon, James Van Der Zee, Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Norman Lewis, Ansel Adams, my early exposure to Verve album covers, and the lyrics of Joni Mitchell.
