Walls of Roosevelt Island, NYC
A series of wall photos from a walk to Roosevelt Island, lying wilfully unloved and sadly unexplored by most of NYC in the East River. Once housing lunatic asylums, prisons and workhouses, now it's rather peaceful - but does contain an army of stray cats.

Mixed Media Glitch
Photoset using various media which were glitched with Audacity, VLC and other digital and analogue techniques to create abstract imagery based on the connections between the ethereally digital and the bodily/physical.

Photoset inspired by New Topography. Highlighting the weathering of urban lines and the jutting of the man-made into the natural, and vice versa.

The photographer cannot be a passive spectator, he is not really lucid unless he is involved in the event.

I’m so worried that I’m going to perfect my technique someday. I have to say its unfortunate how many of my pictures do depend upon some technical error.
