is an award-winning photographer, avid blogger
and best-selling book author, specializing in documentary photography
and visual story telling
. His pictures are honest
and combine thoughtful image composition with significant content."As a photographer who often focuses on long-term projects and difficult subject matters, my work relies on openness and mutual respect. I prefer a minimalist style and my choice of equipment allows me to work unobtrusively and with little overhead. I have documented artists and workers, and people like you and me. I have photographed cities and landscapes, development projects and demolition efforts. I portrayed the young and the strong, the elderly and the ill. In the tradition of classic documentary photography, I usually pursue to publish my work, either online, in magazines or in books. I welcome inquiries and suggestions, and if time and circumstances allow, I'll be happy to take assignments and commissions."
