Twenty years ago I was given an old Revueflex SLR camera and a roll of black and white film. The resulting experience was life changing for me. Since then I still get excited by what I see through the lens and the transformation that takes place as I recreate that moment in my dark room or studio. It is as if I were revisiting an old friend.
My primary focus has been on social documentary photography using film and dark room processes. I am very interested in globalization and modernization and their impact on ethnic groups and cultures both in developed and under-developed societies. I am intrigued by the tension that is created as groups work to retain or lose cultural identities, traditions and icons while embracing modernity.
Recently I have been exploring color and conceptual photography leveraging digital processes. Transformation and change are themes that run through much of the work.
I am currently a member of the Bay Area Photographers Collective, a non-profit, membership organization of fellow photographers and artists located in San Francisco, California.
