I am an award winning free-lance photographer/video-maker affiliated with Aurora Photos and I am based in Providence, Rhode Island. One editor described me as a “...specialist in intercultural communication and visual narratives that excel in their creative mastery of light, shadow and sound, stills and video." At my core, I am a storyteller, using whatever visual communication technology I can to tell stories. In my current work, I photograph as well as make "visual short stories" of the people, places and things that I encounter. A visual short story, like a written one, is "...a narrative dealing with a few characters, one central theme, aiming at unity of effect, concentrating on the creation of mood rather than a plot," according to Merriam-Webster. Over the years I have worked on assignment for such magazines as Fortune, Life, National Geographic, Newsweek, The Sunday New York Times, Time, etc. I have also worked for corporations such as Consolidated Natural Gas and DuPont as well as for non-profits such as the Ford Foundation and the New Israel Fund. My project on the pesticide poisoning of California farm workers was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize by the Philadelphia Inquirer.
