I am a mother of three, grandmother of two, and wife of 34 years to my best friend and staunchest supporter. I split my time between Connecticut and New York City.
In need of a creative outlet, I took up photography when I quit my job in order to spend more time with my children. For years I worked with black and white medium format film, and spent whatever free time I could muster in a peaceful darkroom in my basement; it wasn’t until digital camera sensors went full-frame that I slowly but surely made the transition to digital and (mostly) color photography. I am largely self-taught, although several workshops with Joel Meyerowitz were an invaluable creative boon and set off my passion for street photography.
About the Blog
Early in 2009 I embarked on a self-imposed challenge to take and publish a photograph every day for a year. While I have taken breaks from the “every day” requirement periodically, the act of making a daily photograph has become an ingrained habit in the seven years since I made this lunatic commitment to myself. With a handful of noted exceptions, every photograph was taken on the day it was posted to the blog.
Because I split my time between the leafy suburbs of Connecticut and the beautiful chaos of New York City, this blog might appear, content-wise, to be the work of someone suffering from a sort of photographic schizophrenia. But as Yogi Berra famously said, “No matter where you go, there you are.”
So I make photos wherever I find myself, putting a little frame around what I find beautiful or interesting on any given day.
