My Mexico Obscura Video Now On YouTube

To see MEXICO OBSCURA, go to

Recently, I’ve been doing a bit of time travelling, reviewing my old journals and slides.

And so, I’ve created the video, MEXICO OBSCURA, from my amorphous memories of Mexico 1979.

In this video, my slides take shape, enshrining commonplace reality with a mystical aura of holiness.

Each image captures “a decisive moment” in the juxtaposition of people and their surroundings. The resulting tableaux become ambiguous narratives filled with a magical sense of mystery.

Some of the images in this video have been featured on this blog and in exhibitions.

Forty-six of the photos from the video are available in a keepsake, print-on-demand publication with free digital download for $12 from

Prints and merchandise are available at 


My Optimism of Color Blog

Every Tuesday and Friday, I’m posting a photo or piece of art that I’ve created that reflects what I call the Optimism of Color. Through vibrant colors and bold visceral forms, these works shout out my joy at being alive, and my good fortune at being able to continue to make art after surviving five cardiac arrests in 2011.

Each of the images I post brings a smile to my face. I hope they bring you similar joy and laughter through the Optimism of Color.
