Statement

 

Making photographs is one of the ways I participate in life. I explore my own humanity and place in this world by surveying the mysterious internal beauty, struggle, humor and irony, strength and vulnerability of others and our environment.  I am drawn to photograph what moves me, phenomena that I find beautiful and life affirming, that resonate with my sense of grace or, in some cases, that conflict with it.  I forget myself when I am shooting and become the object of my observation, acutely fascinated by the ephemeral interplay and continuum of interior and exterior space.
