Simon Griffee

Like many human beings I communicate in one of our oldest languages, drawing, with one of our great tools, photography. Photographing helps me feel and notice the world and time I live in and communicate something of this to other people.

I was born in South America, have traveled and lived in a few places and don’t feel particularly attached to any particular land or label. I’m currently surviving in New York City.
