My work is filed under two of my absolute favorite photographers: Robert Mapplethorpe and Joyce Tenneson.

I believe that I once met Robert Mapplethorpe while at a party in NYC as a teen. I didn’t know who he was at the time, but he seemed like a nice fellow. Now that I’ve “grown up” (well, ok, maybe not but…) I fully recognize the significance and impact of his work. He is my favorite photographer. Most folks fail to see the influence his work has on mine but, in some subtle way, it’s always been there. (My recent addiction to all things lensbaby and overall “softness” to my work can be directly attributed to his influence.)

Joyce Tenneson is a monster of a photographer. Her depth, spirit, eye for detail, attention to quality of light, compositional style, and creativity all combine into one “monster of a master” package.

My work really does neither master justice but it’s there now for you to enjoy.

Until next master…
