I remember the first time I picked up a camera at about 16-years-old -- and how
excited I was to capture images of natural and strange objects floating onto the
shores of Cape May, NJ. I have to say, it is one of my fondest memories.
After a few years of traveling and allowing life to happen, I forgot my love for the
camera. It was not until many years later, through immersion in the San
Francisco nightlife and drag communities under the persona “Putanesca,” that
love was reawakened and took new life and focus. It was only natural for my
subjects to include famous drag personas and sexy men and women from all
walks of life.
I love working with well-known individuals – whether they be reality television
drag stars, famous club personalities or trans-culture based artists – and
deconstructing society’s views of those persons through photography. By taking
subjects out of their comfort zones, challenging how others or even how they see
themselves, the result is a reimagining of a public persona and a transformation
of the traditional portrait.
My photography has yielded iconic images of some of the most legendary drag
personalities of our time.
I have also had an opportunity to meet and work with such
cult movies stars and pop idols.
My wish is to inspire the subject, viewer and, of course, myself
