I am fortunate to show quite a variety of images by both emerging and established photographers in a format they and the viewers -- which include a good mix of photographers, art directors, photo editors and gallerists -- all really appreciate. As you'll see ahead, some of my favorites are ones that straddle fine art and documentary.
