I travel around the world to shoot The People, my long-term global portrait series. My ultimate goal is to amass well over one thousand simple portraits that foster empathy and a better understanding of the world and its people.
Think visual anthropology. Or the even more high falutin term ‘ethnocultural empathy’.
I’ve now made over 380 white background portraits shot in China; San Miguel de Allende, Mexico; Selma, Alabama and L.A.. Next stops are Minnesota’s Somali immigrants, Bolivia, Argentina and India.
My Personal Chapters:
I grew up in New York City; moved to San Francisco to go to the San Francisco Art Institute and, after graduation, owned a professional photography studio; back to NYC and London to work internationally at the world's largest ad agency; CEO'd two internet companies during the dot com boom and moved west again to build an ad agency in Oregon. I now consultant with marketing agencies around the world.
But, most importantly, I get to live in Mexico’s most beautiful town… San Miguel de Allende. Come visit.
I’ve started a new photo blog on this website. Take a look.
