Photography has long been a passion of mine, but it is not my sole interest. Compassion for all the animals on our earth and the art of the written word play into who I am as a person and as an artist. "No Admittance: Employees Only" is my first book. I invite the viewer on a behind-the-scenes look at a public library and an animal hospital. The longer I worked on this project, the more obvious the parallels between these two very different places became.
