I’m a New Yorker and the city of concrete and glass is my home. I’m also a photographer – one who works in the natural light of day – who can’t bear to be enclosed in a dark studio or in a matinee theatre when daylight is beckoning. I love the light that casts shadows on the grass and sidewalk, that changes our mood as it suddenly darkens or brightens from between the clouds. I love the light that makes a rose seem plain but then suddenly transforms it to an evocative symbol of love.
Gardens entice me for their colors, textures and patterns. The wind and ever-changing light of day within them presents a constant challenge to my lens that I welcome. And I’m forever intrigued by the imaginative ways talented people weave gardens into our city, bringing nature, greenery, and tranquility to our world of steel, concrete and glass.
Vivid color, graphic patterns, shadows and reflections find me wherever I go. I greet them with my camera, and we wander together.
