My photography is a study of "geometry" in life around us, finding images where visual composition adds its own content to the subject matter.
My goal is to show familiar objects in a new light creating images that emphasize harmony, rhythm and balance in geometry of lines and shapes.
I find my subjects on the streets of New York - New York landmarks, museums and ordinary places like playgrounds and amusement parks.
In my playground pictures I see the playgrounds as places from fairy tales within a dark and preoccupied adult world, places full of beauty surrounded by urban grit.
The Coney Island amusement park is still there but not for long. I wanted to save it's feel of sheer Americana - sometimes funny but often touching- for our children.
