At the Institute of Design, I learned the medium's multiple languages under the tutelage of Aaron Siskind, Arthur Siegel, Garry Winogrand, Joe Jachna, Ken Josephson and Charles Swedlund. Since that time, the possibilities of what a photograph can address and what it can mean have profoundly changed. For the last two decades my pictures have addressed the shared issues reflective of cold war history, cultural meanings, and personal belief. I travel to and document the physical remnants of history, the earth of our past as a record of memory, not as an act of witness.
Since 1991, I have traveled to places anchored to events – some repulsive and some illuminating – in 55 countries and 43 US states that symbolize the sinuous life of world history.
