About

Photographing vintage neon ... one sign at a time

Like many photographers, I started off in the black-and-white darkroom. When I decided to experiment with color, I made my first pilgrimage to Las Vegas. One of my first photos – and still a favorite – was an image I took inside a casino. The background was a rich red and the photo focused on a bank of nickel slot machines. I called that photo “Red Nickel,” and eventually used that name for my photography business.

Something else happened in Vegas. I started photographing neon signs.

Fast forward a few years. I'm now on a mission to document the landscape of neon and electric commercial signs in Massachusetts. Sometimes it feels like a race against time as these signs are replaced or torn down.
