I was born in 1941 in The Bronx, New York City.  At age 19, I decided to leave college and in 1963, I began my lifelong career as a photographer.

In the 1970s, I worked as the staff photographer for the U.S. Marxist Weekly Guardian Newspaper. In 1969, I spent six weeks in Cuba as the Venceremos Brigade photographer and was the photo editor of the resulting book: The Venceremos Brigade.

In 1981, I began a 25-year-long job as the staff photographer for the largest government worker’s union in NYC: District Council 37, of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees.

I was a member of photo agencies Impact Visuals, Gamma Liaison, and Picture Group, who helped me to publish my work in various books and magazines internationally. 

After retiring in 2006, I have continued to shoot, travel, and edit my work.

Currently, my main job is to have my work recognized. I believe my photographs are honest, ethical, compassionate and should join the international theater of artistic and communicative photography.
