So much has changed over the course of a year and a year ago when I began this project with my friend Maria, I certainly never expected this year to look as it does. Before “social distancing” became a new way of living, I asked Maria to join me in a project that could celebrate…Read More

Today, this morning, I am looking out my window watching the distant sun rise and thinking about my journey as I watch the building across from me and the lights slowly turn on, one after another, as people begin to wake to their own day and whatever realities they face in this new and unusual…Read More
Monday, March 16. 8:45am to 11:50 am This is what the city of Warsaw looks like during lockdown. Taking precaution this morning, I decided to walk to the Stare Miasto and back from Ochota (about 11 km rondtrip). During the walk I observed a city normally bustling and crowded with activity of all types empty…Read More
Arbitrary Rendezvous in 2019
2019 was an interesting year for me. It was a year of reconciliation and at the same time lots of personal growth. It was a year when I learned to lean on others and ask for help as well as rekindle relationships that had fallen to the side. There were new friends that came into…Read More
The Art of Our Surroundings

A little luck and good fortune goes a long ways.
Earlier in August, my Nikon FM2 broke…again. Same issue as last time, the rewind stem came undone. Luckily (again) it happened just after I rewound the film, so some very good fortune there. Riding with luck on my side, I found a repairman dedicated to cameras in a way I had not witnessed before and…Read More
My growing obsession into film continues.
Last year on my birthday while vacationing in Lisbon, Agnieszka surpised me with an analog workshop and it set into motion a renewal of energy in photography and a love affair with film. Sometimes I am surpised with how much that single day impacted me and the direction it has taken me in, but life…Read More
Whatever catches your eye.
“Get outside. It’s all about getting out and walking. That’s the first thing. The second thing is, forget everything you’ve learned on the subject of photography for the moment, and just shoot.
