Spanning history, environmentalism and beauty, I trace lyrical night landscapes and interiors, documenting irreversible environmental shifts. These photographs capture both a sense of change as well as a haunting feeling of place.
Beyond documentation, however, these images crystallize a sense of inertia taking place in the landscape.
As the abandoned Mill and land is surveyed–as if a cultural truth is being unearthed–I feel there is a link between environment and culture. Just as traditional small-town life seems to be quietly abandoned, so too is the present day environment mostly forgotten. In both cases, there is a feeling of absence, impending human failure, tragedy, and the crushing force of nature being played out among the ruins of the factory
Earning an MFA from Yale University, my photographs have been exhibited widely internationally in over ninety shows. I was awarded four Yaddo artist residencies fellowships; was a Fulbright Fellow alternate; won a grant to photograph Greenland’s climate change by the American-Scandinavian Foundation; the French Ministry of Culture awarded a fellowship and exhibition. Museums collecting his work include Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, The Brooklyn Museum of Art, Yale University, The Butler Institute of Art, The California Museum of Photography, Winnipeg Art Gallery and The Lowe Art Museum, Miami, Florida.
