photography grabbed hold of greg when he was a teenage kid, opening his eyes and waking him to the marvels there to be found in ordinary everyday regularly overlooked life. much of the work he commenced to do exploited the potential offered by the aesthetic virtues of black & white images (and yes, he still uses film...except for his blog), allowing viewers to be readily transported to another place in our color world.
neighborhood defining venues such as small businesses, coffee shops, and the like have been warmly enthusiastic hosts to his indirectly referential style of documentary photography. through his work, they have enjoyed tantalizing allusions to their own immediate experience that readily draw them to places in their minds they have not regularly been.
early years of life in the working class, bedroom community near kansas city, compelled greg to migrate to new york city where today he is a resident.
