I have taken photos since childhood -- starting first with a Brownie and then a Polaroid camera given to me by my brother.   In high school,  I purchased my first SLR, a Minolta SRT 101, and loved exploring photography with my father.     My true passion started when I switched to digital photography -- inspired by  the ability to play and see instant results --- and through a 365 project I undertook in 2012-2013 which changed the way I see the world.  I live in Brooklyn and am  particularly drawn to "abstract street photography" --- street photographs that abstracted in some way such as through use of shadows, reflections, or silhouettes.    These photographs allow me to express my vision of the world -- a world of mystery,  complexity and ambiguity.
