Taxis rush up Lafayette towards Houston beneath a giant billboard with an ad for yellow jeans. New York City’s famous water towers feature above the rooftops in this grungy urban scene.

Photography has been an obsession since I was 13 years old and went off to Italy clutching my mother’s 1940s roll film camera. I’ve been fooling with computers since I bought an Amiga 1000 back in 1985. My first chunky pixelized images were digitized into that machine using a black and white CCTV camera. At last, with today’s software and hardware I feel that I can create the images I see in my mind’s eye. Visit my website at
