Cloisters: I’ve made an annual pilgrimage to The Cloisters in New York City for many years now. It’s a peaceful, inspired place (for the secular, religious, and everyone in between), filled with aspects of medieval life and vistas of the Hudson River. With each visit I try to look for something I’ve not seen before: an angle for my camera in the architecture or a detail in a painting.

Iris Book: By the time March rolls around where I live, I find it harder and harder to wait for the colors of spring. So I created a book of my favorite flower to bring some of that color indoors all year round
