I'm trying to live my life as a considerate, and sometimes clever, human.

I want to see what it looks like to be alive in the 21st century, this recently digital era, in public and private spaces.

In my documentary work I'm interested in everyday acts of agency, as well as political activism, drug use and drug policy. But I'm especially interested in the role digital networks—as embodied in the everyday electronics permeating our lives, such as phones, screens, chips, etc.—play in mediating/creating/cannibalizing public space.

One life to live, as the soap opera reminds us. One Earth too, as the physicists and climate scientists keep pointing out.

Living this way I feel I'm not squandering the former, and hoping to encourage others to not squander the latter.

If you think you'd like to work with me on a project, go to my contact page and say hello.

I'm available for hire and commission. I am available for social documentary projects, especially if they have a social justice component or involve drug use or drug policy. In addition, I make portraits, and do event and conference photography. Furthermore, I am available as an assistant, a second shooter, a second hand, whether on location or in studio. Finally, I have expertise in Hasselblad Flextight scanners, as well as organising film archives. And, if you'll pay me enough, I'll travel as your pack mule and confidant. Please find contact info here.


All single images are available as prints of any size in non-limited editions (unless otherwise noted) for 100 in your currency, plus cost of production and shipping . The goal is to make all images available, regardless of your economic situation. If there is a print you'd like, but you can't afford the 100 in your currency, please email me, reference the image and state how large you'd like a print, and how much you can afford and I'll likely accept your offer because it's not always about money.


If your in the image I'll send you a print for free, just pay production and shipping. Or I'll email you a file. :D happy looking
