Roaming New York City , photographing from the streets as well as it's rooftops, I am interested in capturing the wonder of this city. These photomontages are part of my on going Manhattan Series which I started in 1990. Fragmentation along with the interplay of positive and negative space are the elements of my photographs. While interested in the individual photographs it is in their reconstruction that I focus to create an image that flows allowing the viewer to see the overall image and then discover the components.
