I’m a photographer who documents little-known aspects of life that are liable to disappear without a trace if I don’t record them. I work with traditional mechanical cameras, 35mm and 120 formats, using black and white film. I process and print the film myself in a classic darkroom setting to achieve the timeless quality and archival permanence that the medium provides.
While my “beat” remains mostly New York City, I have worked on many projects across the United States and around the world. In the mid to late 1980s I had an opportunity to photograph commercial fishermen who caught shad in the Hudson River for a living. The fish run north to spawn in April and May. Commercial fishing for shad is no longer permitted on the Hudson. My photographs are a documentation of that by-gone era.
