As a photographer living in the East Village of New York I’ve been watching Trump’s image appear on buildings in many forms, as his identity in the public unfolds and is resisted. These images reflect nuances that photography can reveal through street art and graffiti that catch the public’s attention. Being on the scene here in one of the biggest cities in the world this work gives viewers a place to position themselves as they begin to explore my investigation of America’s president. Street art is controversial, and the streets serve as a mirror on society. While capturing the color, mystery of everyday changes I used gesture and layering of voices found in my neighborhood, the East Village of New York City walls.

Colombian Resilience

People of San Carlos, Colombia, are traumatized. For decades they have suffered under the violence between guerrillas and paramilitary forces. Almost everybody can report murdered family members.

At the moment violence is calming down; so people take the risk to relocate with the help of the government to their destroyed homes. I photographed their stories.

Colombian Resilience - these photographs have been shown at the parliament house of Pereira where the politicians had to walk by them to their assembly hall, and could read, if they even bothered, the testimonies of these family members of victims of the decades long civil war in Colombia.

American Temples

Between New York City and Lakewood on Route 9 South in New Jersey there are still old fashion diners and fast food temples. They represent both places of gathering and isolation.

I photographed at night, when the black sky separates the lit or glowing objects from their surrounding environment. The patrons are mostly gone and the spaces remain similar to light sculptures. You might see some late food seekers, but the only movements you notice are the flags in the wind.

For me these pictures stand for monuments of the American culture.

Candace

Candace (2008) is a color print of a naked woman jumping from a trampoline. Beautiful, with her arms extended and reddish-brown hair flying, she exhibits both, her body and an exuberance, we don’t encounter often. This image by Troeller communicates both athleticism and passion—revered as an American combination!

Stitched NYC

In this portfolio, I took pictures of iconic buildings mostly in Manhattan. Using these recognizable, significant shapes I created composites in a way that one could possibly see looking through a kaleidoscope.
