Fairytale of New York

A few Christmas’s back, I loaded my Diana with Ilford Hp5 medium format film, and shot a series inspired by one of my favorite Christmas “anti-carols”, the Pogue’s “Fairytale of New York”.



“i can see a better time”

“you took my dreams from me”

“i’ve got a feeling this year’s for me and you”

“and then he sang a song”

“queen of New York City”

“i dreamed about you”

“the boys of the NYPD choir were singing Galway Bay”

“well so could anyone”

“you promised me Broadway was waiting for me”

“i built my dreams around you”

Multiple works for chamber groups and orchestra have been produced and performed. Singer-songwriter with rock and folk roots.. Electronica. Today, it's about mashing together all these things into improbable hybrids. Also, a longtime educator of music. PHOTOGRAPHY Unpredictable and in the moment is what I love. Streets, architecture, and people. Ruined places. History. Frozen moments. Great love for imagines wrought by beautiful mystery of film and vintage cheapy cameras. WRITING The vague, ephemeral. The historical - the ghosts behind the veil of time. Delving deeply into the intricacies of our physical and cultural world. Relaying memory and longing. And sometimes the absurd. Life runs deep. Life
