My work addresses issues of identity within adverse social conditions. I spent fifteen years as a photojournalist for Newhouse News Service, the Times-Picayune, Helsingin Sanomat, and The Providence Journal. My personal work has appeared in numerous publications, including The New York Times LENS, Burn, The Sunday Times Magazine, Afisha MIR, Kuukausiliite, and Neue Zürcher Zeitung, and is in the permanent collection of the Portland Art Museum.
Diane’s Story, my project on one woman's struggle with breast cancer, was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Feature Photography. The series dealt with her attempts to maintain and reclaim her sexual identity while confronting her own mortality. My own need to explore and understand the relation between these issues led to his first trip to Colombia and what would eventually become Chica Barbie.
I live in Denver, Colorado, doing editorial and corporate assignments while pursuing documentary projects.
