Photo Constructions: Original Images

The photo constructions and installations on this site are compiled from many original photographs, all shot at my San Francisco studio. I continue to collect all manners of materials — mostly discarded or secondhand — which I combine beneath my camera’s lens. The resulting prints become the raw material from which I build the final work. The intent is always to use these prints as building blocks, never to ask them to stand on their own. But I am fond of many of them, and it is instructive to inspect them in their original state. The pictures on display are a few choice selections from the nearly 10,000 taken between 2013 and the present. I'll update this page from time to time as new sets are produced.
