Artist Statement

Photography is the means by which I explore imagery of my world, the profound implications of the passage of time and its references to renewal. I create works that reveal the authentic beauty of the unintentionals as well as the intrinsic meaning of the objects and places that surround us in our daily lives. The transient nature of the subject matter often brings poignant interest to my photographs.  In order to enhance this quality, I shoot with available light and frequently use slow sutter speeds.  I believe that the natural alchemy of light and time produces a broader spectrum of color and meaning.  They transform the ordinary subject matter of my photographs into metaphors for the extraordinary, the mysteries of existence and possibly of eternity held in the moment.
