DAYTOP VILLAGE PORTRAITS
I photographed this New York City drug rehabilitation center in the city and in their five residences in upstate New York, living at the various upstate houses for several days a week while photographing and taping oral history interivews. Some of the portraits were taken of the same person one year apart.

THE NAVAJO PORTRAITS
I photographed the Navajo people living in the Joint Use Area of Arizona and taped oral history interviews with them through an interpreter. This was at the request of the Navajo-Hopi Land Dispute Commission and funded with a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship. The leaders of the Navajo Nation wanted the world to see their faces in order to better understand the hardships the people were enduring while being forced to leave their homes and land.

THE SHINNECOCK INDIANS OF EASTERN LONG ISLAND
A SHINNECOCK PORTRAIT was created to present a visual and interpretive picture of the Shinnecock Indian community: to illuminate the continuity and changes within their tribal structure and way of life, and to encourage broader awareness and understanding of the history and heritage of an unspoken people whose faces appear as strong as their pride.

THE HEBER SPRINGS PORTRAITS
I photographed and taped oral history interviews with the people of Heber Springs, Arkansas to explore the continuity and changes within this rural community by comparing and contrasting my contemporary images with the body of portraits created by Mike Disfarmer, who operated a portrait studio on Main Street in the 30's and 40's. Disfarmer created a remarkably moving and insightful series of photographic portraits documenting the character of a segment of small-town America at a time when its endurance was being severely tested and its values were in transition.

The portraits highlight the continuation of traditional artistic vision and the emergence of important and unique contemporary art movements, demonstrating the relationship between the historic and the contemporary and how they coexist.
