This July we'll be returning to China for two weeks. In 2004 we adopted our daughter from Southern China and it's our first opportunity to show her what her homeland is like. This will be a very conventional tourist trip ~ HK, Beijing, Chengdu, Xi'an, Guilin, Shanghai ~ but I am sure there will be plenty of opportunities to make unconventional photographs.


America's divided and I'm unapologetically on the side of the Alt-Right and America First contingent. I'm still trying to figure out how to explore my positions photographically... so I've been shooting farming, guns, political rallies, small town life... looking for the intersections, ironies, and conflicts. Give me some time and I'll figure out how to tie things together but for now I'm in gathering mode. 

FWIW I live with a "progressive voter" and we still get along. But if you're intolerant then please go away. 


Since finishing the tog book I've only worked with a handful of people. I rarely if ever paid the excellent models I collaborated with and I'm not about to start now. If you're still interested feel free to inquire, I enjoy meeting and shooting with intelligent and lively people. I prefer if you come to me in Upstate NY. All of my work is done on location without much planning, fussiness, or styling.
