“As an avid black and white photographer, my favorite subject was musicians – I was greatly influenced by my photography professor, Roy DeCarava, who commented that a musician will envelop themselves in a state of concentration, almost an aura, which he suggested could be captured through photographs. I am also deeply indebted to the late Chris Jaffe, who opened my ears to a realm that intersected and tied together many of my interests including art, architecture, and music.”
