When I came to New York City 39 years ago, I was charmed by its streets, each corner or crevice like a still
life worth capturing. I used to spend a laborious amount of time silkscreening images of the city from
photos, but these days I can easily recreate the same images with a digital camera. It is a different age now.
I love the realism of photography, but I still love the handmade interpretations of drawing. The technology
behind photography has changed much over the years, but drawing has been a constant, for myself and
perhaps humanity, too. Today my two loves merge in this series of work.
