Collapsible Shoulder

Forty years after they cut their teeth in the downtown clubs of a
decaying New York City, these virtuoso musicians still show up
every night. In the clubs with no name on the door, in the
neighborhoods that have long ago priced them out, they play. For
the joy, for the music, to live.

I've been making images (of all shape) for twenty-five years. What connects my life experiences to what I do professionally is my profound and un-quenched curiosity to observe and nurture what's human in all of us. Photography gives me permission, a license to visit the lives of others, the courage to really meet the people I photograph, and the passion to observe and honor the most intimate of our human experiences and emotions. I call it "visual breathing."
