I photographed the Kyoto Window series in 2010. Many traditional homes in Japan are built directly alongside the road and patterned glass is used to provide privacy. The differing textures of the windows create diffuse, abstract, pointillistic, translucent images. When printed large, the images become life-size and offer the viewer an experience similar to peering through a window.
The abstract and painterly quality of these gestures on the surface of a storefront window caught my attention as I was walking in downtown Albuquerque in 2014.
While photographing them I found the depth of view intriguing; a combination of sunlight on the surface of the window, the scene of tables and chandeliers inside the restaurant window and the ever-changing reflections of cars and pedestrians. The image was continuously changing. Later I discovered that the “drawings” were the work of the city maintenance crew, using a high powered sprayer to unsuccessfully remove an anti-graffiti coating on the window.
I photographed these ragged circus tents that were set up at a carnival in Sayulita, Mexico in 2009. I'm drawn to the unexpected combination of beauty and grit that I discover in Mexico.

A collection of photos taken in 2012 of a koi pond.
This series of photos I took in 2015 of shadows of a ficus tree at my doctor's office. For only a very short period of time in the late afternoon, light streams through slumped glass blocks which multiply and layer the images and also add multicolored prism tones.
I photographed these beach fences in Cape May, NJ, 2015.
