Bathtubs 1995-97 is a portrait series of people posing inside the constricted architectural space of the bathroom. Models pose underwater holding their breath or breathing through a plastic tube. The exposures last from one to one-and-a-half hours. Bathtubs has autobiographical references and is evocative of past experiences. At the age of eighteen, after a severe skiing accident, I had four tubes inserted in his body. These tubes and the fluids they carried allowed me to live. This life experience became a direct inspiration for the series.

 My Land, TwiLight Runner extends the themes explored in the TwiLight 2015 series  by shooting 90 minutes before and after sunset. All the photos in this series were shot around the 16th century Siena fortress built by Duke Cosimo from 1561 to 1564. I am particularly interested in this series because of the way the human form is superimposed upon, and integrated within, the urban environment and the landscape framing it.
