Begun in 1992 it is an ongoing every-five-year documentation of downtown Denver cityscapes and streetscapes taken from the same vantage points. And in 2015 his nationally-focused book, Apparitions: Architecture That has Disappeared From Our Cities, was published. He also taught at the University of Colorado Graduate School of Architecture. He has a B.A. in English from Trinity College and an M.A. in Digital Photography from Savannah College of Art and Design.
