From Above

As a native New Yorker, I’ve spent many years looking up at the sky for a sense of space, and as a photographer, I’m reversing this perspective, looking for environments that illustrate how dynamic and diverse our environment is across our country.
I think it’s always important to take a step back in life. That’s one of the main reasons why I love aerials and shooting from high elevations - you can appreciate the third dimension in a way that you very seldom have a chance to experience. Images of people, cities and landscapes from the air tell a unique story about our personal space and how we relate to one another. I’ve always aimed to address the “bigger picture” and larger trends. In many ways, what a photographer does is to give others a chance to stop and look at their world and gain perspective on where we stand, and what that means.
I have always aimed to capture images that most of us never see.
