Although I have been making photographs for over 25 years, it was only in the past 5 years that I have been calling myself a photographer. Up until then, I considered photography a serious hobby while working my “day job” as an electrical engineer in California’s Silicon Valley. Photography is now my full-time passion. Most of my recent work has focused on architecture, urban landscapes and street photography generally, and more specifically on the Atlantic Yards project in my neighborhood of Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. For the past 4 years I have been chronicling the changes to the area within and around the footprint of the project.
