NEW YORK, NY – I am honored to announce that my series Tempus Incognitus was recognized in the PDN Photo Annual 2014 as one of the top photography projects. I extend my heartfelt thanks to PDN and the judges for choosing his series. I also extend my congratulations to the other winners.

Empty hotel rooms from all over the world form the basis of these works, all shot in multiple exposures over time in slide film, with no post-exposure or digital manipulation. The rooms are electric with acidic color, yet spare and detached by virtue of their transient energy and occupation. The perimeters of shifted space and time are blurred, giving a result both classic and contemporary.
