This collection includes pictures from several projects. One is an ongoing series examining the ever-transforming waterfront neighborhood of Red Hook, Brooklyn, which I have been photographing since 2003. The blue/ yellow landscape, landscape with river, and pavilion with ivy growing on it are all from another series examining the remaining sites and structures of world's fair sites internationally. Last but not least, the 'Treehouse' photograph is indicative of my perpetual interest in finding whimsical architecture in unexpected ways.
Through my photographs I explore the aura of the built environment and the endlessly changing relationships between architecture and the space around it. In my 'World's Fair Project,' I have been photographing the remaining sites and structures of world's fairs internationally. Other work includes a series exploring the waterfront neighborhood of Red Hook, Brooklyn, and 'Structure Americana,' including houses, banks, and other vernacular American architecture.
I photograph with a large-format 4x5 view camera. After processing the film I scan the negatives on an Imacon scanner (or get drum scans made). I then spend an average of 5-6 hours per image working in Photoshop, first on retouching, then on perfecting the color and mood of the piece. The final print is a digital chromogenic print, typically exhibited at around 30"x36", framed simply.
