I photograph people.  I show how they’ve been affected by society, their communities and their surroundings.                                                                                                                                                              I am especially drawn to industrial landscapes, physiognomies and decay.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  I currently work on projects that use video, parallax, 3-d images, voice recordings and environmental sounds.
