Statement

My vision is to capture and express images that both embrace and reach beyond the here and now. Photography is an alchemical process – the subject is the raw material, the gold is an image that expresses universal truth beyond that subject, one that makes us think and remember, and ultimately, see the world in a new and different light.

 

"Reflections"

These Photographs are not created by layering in photoshop, they are created directly by capturing window reflections in contrast to what is on the other side of the glass. Directly capturing reflections from windows, they were not created by layering images with photoshop.

Looking through glass is always surprising. Changing the camera angle changes the reflections; shadows change the way objects show or do not show. Inanimate objects in a window can seem to have personality, as photographs are inanimate and yet arouse feeling. These images sometimes layer and sometimes merge. They evoke our double life: who we are inside and what we become outside.

 

"Bodyscapes"

My goal in this series has been to explore the female form as a reflection of the natural landscape while creating images that are at once representational and abstract.

The ebb and flow of elemental earth and water serve to accentuate and reinforce the archetypal femininity found in nature, it's simplicity and singular beauty.
