Hi. I’m Joe.

Thank you for visiting

I am a documentary photographer at large in Minnesota. Since 2003, I have been photographing on the streets of Minneapolis, sidetracking into various subcultures and music scenes, and never really putting my camera away because if I were to do that, a larger share of my pictures will be shot with an iPhone and that would be a bummer.

The reason I photograph a subject is because I want to see what it looks like photographed. Simple as that. However, my unconscious often has reasons it keeps to itself and that synergy makes for a healthy relationship between inner me, my eye, and my surroundings.  Often, the act of making photography is simply me telling myself how I feel about someone, or something, or someplace, or sometime when the light was just so.  I choose to share a lot of these feelings here in the form of slideshows which are added from time to time.

I am not a business. Rather, I am an amateur with professional standards and practices.  But that doesn’t mean I don’t collaborate with people.  If you want my eye on your scene, please reach out.

Again, thank you for visiting.
