My street photographs feature the solitary figure within the urban environment. In a hostile and alienating world, some pursue escape or comfort. Some seek to avoid, while others make the most of it, grinning and bearing the onslaughts of everyday life. Still others can find a sort of peace, wherever they may find themselves. Mostly, we are alone. We survive with a grim determination. The lucky ones have a higher purpose or someone to come home to. This body of works explores some of these environments and the strategies that individuals employ to cope with isolation.
