About Me I had long painted before I picked up a camera — and then one day I started to "take pictures" in addition to making them. I very much liked how the camera represented the visual world, the quickness of its perception, and the experience of being in the world as a picture-taker. Still Life has always appealed to me with its quiet, steady, uninterrupted pace, and the open-ended possibilities it presents for formal and semantic experimentation. The objects depicted in the Still-Life pictures are things I've collected over the years or recently purchased at a grocery store. None holds any fixed meaning to me — they are actors on a small stage, occasionally shown performing, more often seen simply for what they are and how they look. My goal is to give you a small but inexhaustible aesthetic experience: a moment of recognition, a connection. I live with my wife in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA.
