About the photographer....

I am no longer active as a professional photographer.

For more than twenty years I actively enjoyed the pursuit of news, the beauty of fashion and pleasure of music, be it Rock n' Roll or the Metropolitan Opera.

It was not the work that burned me out, but the politics of the newsroom and the constant erosion of control over what I photographed and how I photographed it.

Everything became an "opportunity"; staged, rigged and directed by publicists.

It wasn't fun, it wasn't photography and it sure as hell wasn't news.
