I am a street photographer based outside Detroit, USA. My work spans the United States, Europe and Asia, where I shoot un-staged photos.
I look to find what I call the indecisive moment. All of my photographs look to answer this: how does a photograph create itself out of nothing? The stories that show themselves in front of me may only exist for a split second. But they are the same wherever they take place. My role is to help create them. “Not Very Clever, A Guide For The Unperplexed” is my current set of essays. Two chapters, “Unrequitted Love” and “It’s A Quiet Party Life” are excerpted here. These were shot in Taiwan, Hong Kong, New York, Detroit, Italy, London and elsewhere.
