[On Assignment in Rural Oregon]
I began as documentary photographer of my hometown in the Pacific Northwest.
Since then my work been built around relationship - to the land and to each other.
I make most of this stuff with the tools of cinema, photography, and language.
Currently I'm working on a feature film and a new gallery show.
I am the first son of a Bohemian farm girl from Wisconsin who became an activist
and a Bengali boy from a factory town in India who became an engineer.
This is where I'm from and from where my questions originate.
I live with my partner and painter Ellen Picken in Spokane, not too far from where I grew up.
Together we collaborate at Factory Town.
Thanks for stopping by.
Open to all questions and inquiries. Just please don't try and sell me your marketing services, instagram secrets,
online courses, or anything with a subscription. I'm GOOD. Singing telegrams are welcome.
