Holy Week in Guatemala featured in Slate

Thanks to David Rosenberg for featuring ten images from my series Holy Week in Guatemala in Slate Behold. All of these images were captured in Antigua during Semana Santa in 2015. The Slate article was published while I was on a return trip to Guatemala to photograph during the 2016 celebrations.

Ten prints from this series will also be on display from April 7, 2016 through March 31, 2017 in the 2016 Pacific Northwest Viewing Drawers at the Blue Sky Gallery in Portland, OR.


I plan assemble a portfolio for my website combining images from both years soon.

Metro at SF Camerawork

I was thrilled to give a talk at the Daylight Books Spring 2016 launch event at San Francisco Camerawork last week where my book   Metro: Scenes from an Urban Stage   was unveiled.

After spending countless hours riding and photographing on metro systems around the world during the past eight years, followed by months of editing and sequencing of images for the book, and making numerous design decisions, it was wonderful to finally hold the completed monograph in my hand. The 88 page hardbound 8 by 10 inch book contains fifty images from metros in fifteen cities on four continents. It includes a wonderful foreword by Ed Kashi and a compelling essay by Marlaine Glicksman. The graphic design by Ursula Damm is simultaneously classic and unique. The beautiful duotone printing was done by Ofset Yapimivi in Istanbul on Magno matt paper. I’m very grateful for all of the help and encouragement I received from my friends and everyone at Daylight Books. I’m extremely pleased with this book turned out, and I hope that you will agree.
