The Scaffold Project
Lane Lines


My background in design evolved into a photography career focusing on New York architecture and other urban artifacts. My photographs are tightly composed studies of details of the built environment often unnoticed by the casual observer.


I was born in Waterbury, Connecticut in 1945.

I graduated from the Paier College of Art in 1966 where I studied art history, painting, linear perspective drawing and furniture and textile design.

In 1966 I relocated to New York City where I made my home and where I still live.

Since 1970 my furniture and textile designs have been commissioned by manufacturers and designers in the U.S. and Europe.

Beginning in 1999 I studied dark-room technique and large format photography at the New School for Social Research and the International Center for Photography, both in New York City. For over two decades my love of New York and its multifarious aspects has provided seemingly endless possibilities for my photography.

Since 1999 my work has been shown at the Michael Ingbar Gallery, the American Space Gallery and currently at Soho Photo Gallery all in New York. It is also in the permanent collection of the New-York Historical Society and in private collections in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles.
