April 19, 2023, was the official launch of my latest book project: 74, M4, Latin America: a year, a camera, a road trip, which features my first serious photography project. It’s named for the year, the camera I photographed with, and the destination I traveled to. It’s framed as a memoir telling the story of how I became a photographer.

An exhibition of photographs from 74, M4, Latin America will be on view this summer at Leica Store Miami in Coral Gables, Florida, with an opening reception and book signing on June 8, 2023.

The launch party also featured a sneak preview of the new edition of New Orleans: Elegance and Decadence, which will be released in June 2023 from Schiffer Books. The new edition launches on the 30th anniversary of the original edition. In celebration of the new edition an exhibition of photographs from the book will be on display from September 16, to November 26, 2023, at Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans.
