New York, NY
Natural, appealing portraits of real people in simple, emblematic settings. Your pictures always make the subject the hero of the shot supported by a background or complimentary setting that helps to tell the story without becoming the story. Your unique talent is that you create these portraits with ease and without fanfare and the net result is that they always hit the spot - they are effective, believable and usually joyful. They never appear staged yet they appear to be a very special reality - that is one of happy acceptance - happy to be young or happy to old, white, black, yellow, brown, happy to be. And happy to be wherever they may be - on the streets of Cairo, New York City, suburban USA, in the corporate office, the hospital, etc., etc. Driving it all is that sense of truth within yourself that steers you away from what is false and toward that which is true.
