Sheltering In Place is my rumination on essentials of life during the Covid-19 Pandemic,interpreted in the style of 17th Century still life paintings.

I am a Bay Area photographer. I live in Oakland, CA (USA). My photography practice is centered around my own work and that of other artists since I spend time each month doing volunteer work directly related to assisting the local photographic community. Most recently I have launched a project called Sheltering In Place Art. It is a Facebook group dedicated to illustrating what people are creating right now.

Personally, my work in photography is related to either documentary projects or to intimate still-life studio imagery. My current documentary project is called Essential Workers.
