Urbania 1990-present

Selects: Collection:150+images, 35mm film, Limited Edition:4 

Urbania is a lifelong work, shot worldwide. It wasn't beauty I was looking for, but rather life around the edges... humans found within the construct of cities in proud, defiant, funny, odd, and often internal moments of connection and disconnection-the seeing and not seeing. Narratives written by the viewer.


I continue to shoot this series in black and white to negate the distraction of time and place, pondering life within the frame and my relationship as both viewer and participant. 

The Lost and the Found

In 2016, two decades of work and collection-in-progress, long presumed lost, were recovered. Thousands of negs and prints had been destroyed. Urbania holds some the works that survived.
