This series of images explores Landmarks in both an historial and cultural context. The use of the Holga camera with its trademark vignetting, slight distortion and other imperfections combined with the use of sepia toned silver gelatin prints are integral in the exploration of this theme.

"Hook Mill", an image of a post mill built by Nathaniel Dominy IV in 1806 in East Hampton, New York, would be an historical landmark. "Memory Motel" is a cultural landmark because the Rolling Stones named their ballad "Memory Motel" after the actual Memory Motel in Montauk New York. It was released on The Rolling Stones' 1976 album Black and Blue.

The images in this series have been widely exhibited on the East End, published in the New York Times and locally in the East Hampton Star, The Independant and The Southampton Press. Images from this series were included in the museum exhibition "Our Town" at Guild Hall of East Hampton, curated by Christina Strassfield in 2006/2007 which also included images by Richard Avedon, Eliot Erwitt, Bruce Weber, Ralph Gibson and more. Images from the Landmarks series have been exhibited at numerous galleries including Gallery North, Elaine Benson Gallery, Soho Photo Gallery and Boltax Gallery.

Silver-Gelatin Sepia-toned prints available in limited editions.
