Who am I?

About me:

I am a photographer, painter, sculptor, and teacher. A strong motivation behind my work has been an exploration of the nature of perception, light and gesture.

My work was exhibited again at MoMA in Object and Abstraction. Other notable exhibitions include solo shows at James Danziger Gallery, NY, and Marion Locks Gallery, Philadelphia, Mediated Site/Mediating Vision at the California Museum of Photography, and inclusion in the traveling exhibition This is Not a Photograph.

My work was published in the historical survey American Photographs: 1900-2000 and  has been reproduced or reviewed in Blind Spot, Visionaire, the New York Times, Exit magazine, the Washington Post, and the Village Voice, among other publications.

Education and Teaching:

I received an MFA in Painting from the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia and prior to that, a BA in Philosophy from Oberlin College. I have taught at the International Center of Photography since 1997. From 1998 - 2003, I was on the faculty in the BFA program at Parsons School of Design. In 2003 - 2004, I was a Visiting Professor at Ohio University, in both the BFA and Masters Programs. I've done a brief stint at Cooper Union, and was a Visiting Artist at Kansas State University and Centro de la Imagen, Mexico City.

About this blog:

The purpose of this blog is to provide a record of what is going on in the art world in New York City as wells as to create a resource for my students or anyone interested in contemporary art. As an artist, I’m interested in and passionate about what other artists are doing. Artists care about art. I intend to write about whatever moves me, and to call attention to what I think needs more of it.
