THE VESSEL
The Vessel is a 16-story, 150-foot-high, funnel-shaped structure of connected staircases located between the buildings of the Hudson Yards complex in New York City. It has 154 flights, 80 landings, and a total of 2500 steps that start at its 50-foot-wide base and end at its 150-foot-wide apex. I decided to photograph the structure with a fisheye lens and to render the images to a high contrast black and white to emphasize the latticework of the interconnecting staircases and the sheen of the copper-clad steps. Some of the images remind me of an Escher stairwell lithograph.

UNITARIAN CEMETERY
In use as a burial ground since the late 18th century, the most striking feature of the churchyard of the Unitarian Church in Charleston, South Carolina is its lush overgrowth and moss-draped oaks. Vegetation is left to grow wild as a symbol of life even after death. The early Unitarians saw death as a natural life passage to be welcomed as a reunion with nature and a blending forever with the elements. They created a garden where both the living and dead could mingle with nature.

PARADE
THANKSGIVING AND ST. PATRICK'S DAY 1972–1976
Over a period of several years in the 1970s, I photographed the Thanksgiving and St. Patrick's Day parades in New York City. I found that the people watching the parade were far more interesting than the parade itself. This book features a selection of street portraits from that era.

INNER CHAMBERS
Starting after the American Revolution and continuing until the early 20th century, the United States built numerous forts as part of a coastal defense system to protect major cities and ports from attack by foreign navies. Some of these forts no longer exist, while others have been preserved to various degrees. When I visited a few of these places, I discovered these inner chambers – strange rooms buried within the interior of the fort. They were used for various purposes such as weapons, ammunition, and gunpowder storage, and as fortified emplacements from which cannons were fired. Empty of what they once held and no longer serving their original function, all that remains of these chambers are the colors, shapes, and textures of their enclosing walls.

A CALIFORNIA PORTFOLIO
California’s diverse geography ranges from the Pacific Coast in the west, the Sierra Nevada Mountains in the east, the Redwood and Douglas fir forests in the northwest, and the Mojave Desert in the southeast. The center of the state is dominated by the Central Valley, a major agricultural area. It is one of my favorite places for landscape photography.

A HAWAI'I PORTFOLIO
A selection of photographs from two photo trips to the Hawaiian Islands, visiting Kaua‘i, O‘ahu, and the Big Island. The emphasis is more on the mystical and historical, rather than the typical sunset with palm trees on the beach.

A NEW MEXICO PORTFOLIO
New Mexico is a land of contrasts – from ancient civilizations to the development of the atomic bomb. It’s also a land of spectacular landscapes, rich in Spanish and Native American cultures. This book features a selection of photographs I made on several trips to New Mexico. They span a timeline stretching from the formation of river gorges and sand dunes millions of years ago, to churches built during the Spanish Colonial period, to examples of architecture in the heyday of railroad travel and at the beginning of the automobile era.

A SOUTH CAROLINA PORTFOLIO
South Carolina can be a land of mystery and history if you look hard enough. Swamps, marshes, coastal areas shrouded in fog, old buildings fallen to ruins long ago, are some of the subjects I found in my travels through the South Carolina Low Country.

LAS VEGAS IN INFRARED
I had been to Las Vegas many times, but never was very interested in photographing there. But on one trip out west, I decided to take some shots on my newly infrared modified digital camera. The fantasy effect that the infrared portion of the spectrum adds to the already fantastical architecture really inspired me to pursue this further and to complete the project over several trips.

ON THE ROAD: STRUCTURES
Once or twice a year I take to the road on long trips across the country, looking for interesting landscapes to photograph. In my travels I’ve noticed and photographed what, for want of a better term, could be called “structures” – lone buildings, towers, monuments, objects, remains of dwellings – isolated within the landscape. Some are merely functional, some are commemorative, and some are surviving remnants of what once was, but they all serve as a fascinating counterpoint to the wider expanse around them.

THE COLUMBIA CANAL AND GUIGNARD BRICK KILNS
Using an infrared modified digital camera, I photographed two examples of old industrial sites in the Columbia, South Carolina area. Recording these scenes in infrared added an interesting dimension to these historic places.

WASHINGTON AND OREGON IN INFRARED
In August of 2007 I spent two weeks traveling in Oregon and Washington. This wasn’t the first time I had been to this part of the country on a photo trip, but it was the first time I had been in this area with my infrared modified Canon 5D. The results were quite amazing.
