Murals & Visual Art

The majority of my work is the documentation of public art in Philadelphia. These galleries provide some highlights from more than a decade of that work.

Toynbee Tiles & Resurrect Dead

Sometime in 1993, I was heading to the arcade with a pocketful of quarters when I noticed a Toynbee Tile embedded in the asphalt. I was somewhere near 16th and Chestnut Streets in center city Philadelphia. That moment put me on a path that culminated in my participation in the Sundance Award winning documentary, Resurrect Dead: The Mystery of the Toynbee Tiles. These galleries illustrate a bit of that ride, and the decades long obsession that created some of the most surreal experiences of my life so far.

People, Places, Projects (and everything else)

Long ago, when money was tighter and my budget was a struggle, I managed to save up enough to buy a Pentax K-1000 and a couple of cheap lenses. It was the first thing I saved for, while living on my own. More than half a lifetime removed from that purchase, I’ve shot hundreds of thousands of images for myself, my friends, and a growing list of clients. These galleries represent collections of images from the for myself category. As a working photographer, it can be a struggle to find time for this work, but finding that time is essential for maintaining a love for the medium and the work.
