Research Interests

I've created a number of photo series in Asia. "Here & There" is a group
of color panoramas of various interiors, both sacred and secular. "In
Camera," also color panoramas, concerns itself with old photo studios in
Vietnam, India, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka.

I spent time in Vietnam and in 1995-5 had an Asian Cultural Council
Fellowship Grant to work with Vietnamese photographers; spent 1999-2000 on
a Fulbright photographing in Sri Lanka and India; and am currently working
on a grant from the American Institute of Sri Lankan Studies (AISLS)
shooting the film industry in Sri Lanka.

Teaching Interests

I teach photography at both the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan and
Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. I graduated with a BA from Barnard College
(majoring in Architectural History) and an MFA (in photography) from
