Cain and Abel
Gelatin silver print
Cain and Abel is not a piece of recent work, but it is the most requested and reproduced. In a sort of reverse engineering, the picture was taken on a whim while testing a new camera. It was only while looking at the proof sheet a few months later that the illustration struck me.
My more recent work revolves around the social or cultural landscape and what the things we build say about us. In this venture, I find much in common with the New Topographics movement of the 1970s. At the same time, as a photography teacher, I end up with an eclectic shooting style in order to provoke my students.
