I’m a fine art and editorial photographer living and working in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I shoot portraits and reportage. Editorial clients include TIME, Fortune, Bloomberg Businessweek, Mpls. St. Paul Magazine, Refinery29, The New Yorker.
My series The Once and Future Queens features large-scale photographs of individuals that answered an online ad soliciting older women to pose as glamorous movie stars. The series has been shown in European Institutions @ Open Eye Gallery (Liverpool, U.K.) and Musee de la Photographie (Charleroi, Belgium).
My monograph Cuba TV was published by Mark Batty Publishers. My fine art has been featured in Another Magazine, The Guardian, Issue Magazine, Slate, Juxtapoz, and Plastik. I hold an MFA from the University of California at San Diego.
