ARTIST'S STATEMENT

I was born in New York City where I have spent most of my life. I had a career in clinical psychology, psychoanalysis and university teaching. Just before my 70th birthday I began taking photography classes at The International Center of Photography. I developed a strong interest in candid street photography. Now, thirteen years later, I have been in over eighty group exhibitions, have had four solo shows and have won a number of awards, such as 1st place in the Soho Photo Gallery National Competition in 2015. I was a finalist in the Miami Street Festival in both 2017 and 2018 and Streetfoto San Francisco in 2018. In 2019 I was the winner of both the PDN 'FACES' Awards for self-portraits and the Street Division of the Pollux Awards. I was also a finalist in The London Street Photography Festival. Most recently I was the winner of the 2020 6th Annual Street Shooting Around the World Exhibition at the Los Angeles Center of Photography for best individual photograph. Additionally, in 2020, I was the 3rd Place Winner of Lens Culture Streets. ​My work has been featured in Popular Photography Magazine.
