“After a decade of trying to make perfect digital photos, I decided to return to film and embrace the so-called imperfections. I find them to be integral in giving my images a semblance of soul. My initial inspiration to take up photography was my grandfather William Nurenberg, a magnificent unknown street photographer. I often recall the nights we’d gather around the slide projector to see pictures from his latest trip on Kodachrome. While I’ve made my living documenting the most dramatic moments of life, it’s often been the more insignificant things that intrigue me most. I identify closely with the artists of the abstract De Stijl movement of the 1920’s. I love to capture tidy little relationships of light and shadow. I’m constantly searching for a way to express my idea that ‘everything is perfectly what it is.”
