NEWS: On Friday, May 17th from 6:30 pm to 8 pm, I will be giving a talk and presentation about my solo photographic exhibit at the Arts Society of Kingston (97 Broadway, Kingston, NY). The exhibit, CHANGIN' TIMES, runs through May 26th (Thursdays to Sundays, Noon to 5 pm). The exhibit draws from this portfolio website and covers the late 60's and 70's: music, culture, streets, protests, people. Last year I presented an edition of CHANGIN' TIMES at a gallery in NYC's East Village. Art critic J. Scott Orr published a wonderful and comprehensive review in BSceneZine 

 

Growing up in New York City and traveling across the country, I photographed creative and turbulent times. I was fortunate to record images of iconic folksingers, blues artists and rock groups – including The Band, Pete Seeger, Gram Parsons, Tim Buckley, The Byrds, Buddy Guy, Al Kooper, Joan Baez, Bonnie Raitt and many others.

 

Through Getty Images, I've been published in major media, including Rolling Stone, The New Yorker, New York Times, New York Magazine, People, Smithsonian, Huffington Post, AOL, CNN and numerous other national and international publications, books, websites and networks, as well as documentary and independent films and videos.

 

My portfolios continue to grow, as I mine my archives and scan more original black & white negatives and color slides.

Living in the Hudson Valley, in the Town of Rhinebeck, New York, I exhibited in the Gallery@Rhinebeck, and had a solo exhibit at the Starr Library and four solo shows at Rhinebeck Bank. I was included in the 2022 group art show "Understory" at the Betsy Jacaruso Studio & Gallery in Rhinebeck. A group of my photographs are on display in the lobby collection at Radio Woodstock in Woodstock N.Y. 

 

I am represented in the virtual gallery Rhinebeck Fine Art and in 2023 was part of their group art show at Gallery 40 in Poughkeepsie, NY. I am a member of the Arts Society of Kingston, and have work in their monthly members shows, as well as this current solo show, CHANGIN' TIMES.
