I’ve posted a selection of images from the year long – and still ongoing – Hoosac Transect project. It’s a project I have been working on since January 2010, photographing along the Hoosac Tunnel rail corridor. It’s the largest project I’ve taken on to date, covering a 200 mile long corridor from Albany New York, […]
I live 1 mile from my workplace. I walk most days, so the scenery along the way is familiar. I thought I would take some snapshots on the way home today to see if anything stuck. It looks more interesting in the photos than it does on the ground.
These are some photographs from one of my favorite projects – the Tahawus Mine in the High Peaks regions of New York’s Adirondack mountains. The High Peaks are also one of my favorite places for hiking and camping, which I did for years before discovering the Tahawus mine ruins. The mine ruins were located on […]
A new loosely defined project. Photograph the architecture, and whatever else is interesting, along a corridor defined by an old rail line. The idea is that the rail line was the seed that many of these towns and industries sprang from. So it is the root of these communtities, even though that rail line has […]

I like the sketchy nature of the images, almost like drawings. I’m interested in the old neighborhoods near the industrial area, in the true heart of the city. More from […]
I’m working on a photography project, and am finding that early Sunday mornings are a great time to get out and take photographs. It’s quiet, people are sleeping in, and the streets are empty. Taking photographs outside in public view tends to draw a lot of attention. Especially if you are photographing something unusual, like […]
Old things interest me, they are evocative, they have a rich visual language. Most of my work is about old things – buildings, objects, even landscapes. Why give so much attention to old things? It is what interests me, I’m drawn to it. Even after photographing this subject for over 20 years, I still find […]
I enjoy ugly buildings. What constitutes interesting architecture anyway? Noble proportions, interesting detail, grand scale? I find that often it is the simplest buildings, the most basic delapitated structures that I am attracted to. It is a catagory I would call ineligant neglected roadside architecture. These buildings are a product of their local culture and […]
