has been such a gift in my life. it
is both a rich resource for exploring the infinite manifestations of light, and
a metaphor for life itself� a delicate balance between the momentary and
eternal. it is a frozen moment on
the one hand, a statement about what transcends the moment on the other.
can be a window onto the world and into one�s inner self.
photography has been for me both a craft and a vehicle for spiritual
growth and expression. i have come
to understand that i cannot �see� on the outside what i am not in touch with
on the inside. similarly, when i
really see on the outside, there is greater clarity to my inner eye, my heart is
moved, and i
become one with the object. my goal
as an artist is to craft photographs that capture what i see when i see in this
way, such that the viewer may be
simplicity in my images, striving to create a distilled essence that enables an
experience of resonance
in the viewer. i want to transport
the viewer into, at times, a peaceful place, and at other times,
a place that is at first unfamiliar, and then recognizable � with the
confusion of chaos yielding to the excitement of discovery of an underlying
rarely far from a camera, hoping to record the fleeting image that eludes
capture if my camera is not
close at hand. often, as i go about
my day, unusual lighting or the interplay of colors, which make the familiar and
mundane more dramatic, will attract my attention.
it draws me in,
calls me to attention,
and invites me to see the ordinary in a new way.
in this way, each new day, each new moment is a gift. i take special pleasure in seeking to capture the beauty and whimsy
about us as revealed by light � whether found in the grand scale or
intricacies of nature or in the mundane and ordinary.
while each viewer�s
experience and perspectives are unique, my aim is to tap into what is universal.
my delight is to be in service by sharing these gifts photography
