It was my good fortune to be born and raised in “El Barrio” aka Spanish Harlem, NYC, in 1960. I came to photography by way of object based design and installation art. I substituted the insularity of my previous studio practice while dismissing the vagaries and pretensions of the art world industrial complex, for a more honest and vastly more personal engagement with my city and the world at large. I attended Pratt Institute in Brooklyn from 1978-1982 on a scholarship. Thankfully I still reside in NYC, alive, engaged and photographing daily. Welcome!
