I moved to New York City in 1976 to pursue my career as a professional photographer. My assignment work took me around these United States, and to many foreign countries. Meanwhile, back in New York, I climbed, crawled, and flew all over that city taking pictures. These images are a sampling from that body of work. In 2018 my wife Fabian and I produced a book of my personal work captured during that time. Purchase information for the book is located at the bottom of this page.
