ARTISTS STATEMENT

 

Ever since my father put a camera in my hands when I was five, I look through a camera’s lens and move more slowly, breathe more deeply and  become part of the world around me. My images focus on the intersection and interplay of color, light and line of everyday things to tell a story of what has been, what is, or what will–or can–be. 

 

Raised on film and in a darkroom, I expose and frame through the lens as with film even though I now shoot digital. I believe photographs are the art and science of painting with light, and that a negative is still a negative regardless if it is a glass plate, a roll of film or a SD card.

 

Each picture I take captures a moment in time, never to be repeated yet destined to exist beyond the moment. Beyond bridging time and space, I hope my images spark individual memories and universal emotions for those who see them.
