I was born in Jersey City in 1951 to an American father and a German mother, and my earliest visual memories were forged by frequent day trips exploring New York City’s Manhattan Island with my grandmother. Aside from childhood adventures with a Brownie Box camera, I took up photography with serious intent while studying at Valparaiso University. I began taking street photographs in Chicago, with a Zeiss Ikon 2.25 X 2.25mm rangefinder camera my father had brought back to the States from Germany after WW 2. In addition to a wide variety of corporate/industrial and editorial clients, I have worked primarily for The New York Times as a freelance photojournalist since 1993. I pursue a personal photographic vision carrying a Leica M6 camera on international and domestic travel junkets between assignments. I make my permanent home in Connecticut, 100 miles north of New York City, and divide my time between there Berlin, DE, and Bern, Switzerland.
