Years ago, in a class, I saw Le Banquet, by the French photographer, Bernard Faucon.
My brain went kaboom.
I had never seen photography like that before.
While I didn't pursue constructed photography, myself, seeing it opened the possibilities of photography to me.
I enjoy being a flâneur with a camera, whether I'm:
• On the street (Man in the Crowd).
• Or hiking up Vroman's Nose (My Side of the Mountain).
Observing with a camera in hand is more photography for me than is a print on the wall.
A common theme is personality, whether from people, or things, like bikes and chairs.

I'm a photography teacher in NYC and environs.
My teaching is far more important to me than my own photography.
I love photography; my passion is teaching photography.
I enjoy creating an environment in which students learn, gain more confidence and direction, and have fun.
I teach at the International Center of Photography and the 92nd St. Y.

I also do private lessons.
