I am originally from New York City. I have been living in Mexico City since 1989 and now divide my time between Mexico City and Cali, Colombia since 2013.
I am a writer and photographer. I’m currently working on a new book entitled The Architecture of Sex. The book is both an autobiography and an analysis of porn, prostitution and photography in Cali, to be richly illustrated with several of my photographic series.
I am the author of Formas de Morir en México (Trilce 2015), Several Ways to Die in Mexico City (Feral House 2012), and of the photobooks Sonora: The Magic Market (RM 2008) and El Super (RM 2006).
My writing has been published in the London Guardian, Vice, Guernica, Atlantica, Weapons of Reason, Salon, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, Aeon, The Ecologist, Art in America and elsewhere.
My photographs have been published in The Guardian, Vice, LensCulture, Dangerous Minds, L’Oeil de la Photografie, Domus, Uncube, Bomb, Morbid Anatomy, Colors, the Los Angeles Times and Huffington Post. My series entitled A City Abandoned was nominated in 2015 for the prestigious Prix Pictet and selected as one of the ten best photo-essays of 2015 by Domus (Italy).
I have had several individual and group exhibitions of my photography work and installations in Mexico and the USA.
