On September 16th through the 21st select images from my book Suspect Device will be featured in the Leica Galerie at Photokina in Cologne, Germany. 18 large print photographs will be hung on two 23 foot bright orange walls in Hall 1 of the Koelnmesse, Cologne’s exhibition center. Photokina is the world’s largest photography fair and I am truly honored that Leica Camera AG has selected my documentation of the current Washington, D.C., punk scene to be part of this amazing exhibit.

Featured photographers include the legendary Jim Marshall who is known for his portraits of musicians such as Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan and The Beatles. Magnum photographer Thomas Hoepker, winner of the 2014 Leica Hall of Fame Award, will have a 60 year retrospective of his work entitled “Wanderlust.” And Till Brönner, the internationally acclaimed trumpeter, singer and composer, will be presenting his new book of photographs called “Faces of Talent.” Other artists include Bryan Adams, Michael Agel, René Burri, Alejandro Cegarra, Anton Corbijn, Jamie Cullum, Glen Craig, D-Nice, Lois Hechenblaikner, Martin Kollar, Gerd Ludwig, Mary McCartney, Anja Niedringhaus, Jürgen Schadeberg, Andy Summers, Tom Wright and George Yammine.

NW, DC. Please save the date and come out to see some fantastic and interesting street photographs that conjure up the various meanings of faith.

    Press release follows:

    Leica Store Washington DC Presents:
    "Faith" by Strata Collective

    Opening Reception is Saturday, August 9, 2014
    6pm to 9pm
    Leica Store DC
    977 F street, NW
    Washington, DC 20004
    Telephone (+1) 202-787-5900

     We are pushed to questions as we step into the world through the complex eyes of Strata Collective. As observers of the street they cleverly draw us close to bubbles of constructed reality and we begin to glimpse the slight or might of the varied personal trusts we live amongst.

    As both photographers and engaged citizens, the members of Strata Collective explore the notions

    of faith and the things people hold onto in times of uncertainty, whether it be God, country, communities, resources, family, or ideas. We’ve seen these struggles play out in towns and cities across the country - human dramas that unfold in the street. It’s on the street that faith is proclaimed, tested, reinforced and abandoned, against the backdrop of a rapidly changing American landscape.

    This collection represents both new and previously exhibited photographs by the Strata Collective, specially curated for this exhibition under the theme of “Faith”.


    Strata is a photography collective borne out of a shared passion for the still image. Its members seek to document the beauty, humor, mystery and absurdity in the quotidian. We are not interested in stock photography nor in images that are simply illustrative. Strata strives to create images that are hard to make and even harder to categorize. Pictures that raise more questions than answers and reflect an eclectic, diverse worldview.
