This is a beautiful world. I invite you to share my delight in what I chose to photograph, either because I found it visually precious enough to conserve the beauty of the moment, or because I imagined it differently from its day-to-day appearance and invented another look or sense for it, or, most of all, because I hope that your spirit might also be lifted by sharing my experience.

Artistic Expression

I am inspired by a variety of photographic subjects, among others: the built environment; architectural detail; the night; water; abstracts and musical event portraiture. I absolutely love a satisfying composition and the interplay of patterns and contrasting elements in a scene.

Who am I?

I grew up in Edinburgh and my photography reflects a diverse background, which includes Jewish, French and Scottish roots. I studied and became passionate about the visual arts, particularly admiring the Dutch masters, French Impressionists and Japanese Ukiyo-e painters. Since adolescence, I have pursued my artistic expression via photography. A decade ago, my transition to digital photography coincided with a move to New York. The combination of new technology, membership in the ASMP (American Society of Media Photographers) and inspiration from further education and other photographers generated a leap in creativity that drives me today.

I have exhibited regularly in Paris, as well as the USA and have won Fine Art recognition in several prestigious competitions. I am now resident in Paris, pursuing my passion for Fine Art photography.

Thank you for taking a moment to share these joys with me.
