Life at the Chelsea Hotel arrived in fragments, signs, things heard,
things felt rather than chronologically charted. The complexity of
the living in a iconic space is explored including the dislocation of
artists in times of gentrification.

My photography is focused on healing, community, sexual issues and self-portraiture. Projects have led to four books and my photographs have been collected by the Norton Museum; University of Texas, Austin and a self-portrait show in special collections, 2022 at Bryn Mawr College. As an art documentary photographer I have had the chance to bring images from gallery walls to media that, for example, helped change Finland's government to stop stamping passports with the HIV stigma. In my photographs of women and myself I am devoted to raising awareness through creative experiments.
