"Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.” ― Søren Kierkegaard
My journeys take me to main streets in America where I enjoy discovering icons from different periods in history. In my Reflections from Main Street America collection, I portray Americana from the mid-twentieth century in the context of everyday contemporary life, something that is reminiscent of my childhood.
I've captured images over a decade from eight states across America. Some stand on their own while other paired images snapshot change over time in American main streets.
I use unusual framing techniques and multiple planes of perspective in the work. I use minimal post-production, preferring to capture the moment while photographing.
Fine art prints are made on Canson Platine Fibre Rag, a 100% cotton rag paper with a pure white base.
Prints are made to order and ship worldwide from Massachusetts within approximately 3 weeks.
Additional images available on request.
“What I always loved about vintage clothes is that you let the woman who wore it before you live on in some way.” ― Liz Goldwyn
