I don't take pictures, I study life.
My camera shapes to how I experience and understand the world. The interpretive process of making photographs is a non-verbal exchange between my subconscious and my waking awareness. Photography also stimulates a dialogue between the conflicting parts of myself and other people.
I shamelessly use my camera as an excuse to hone in on something—some ephemeral quality of my world, some gesture or visual cue—which I need to explore, understand. There is an odd form of energy, a potency of creation in making images that I ride like the crest of a wave.
I turn my lenses toward many things—including myself, other people, plants, landscapes. In some ways the subject is less important than how I experience those things, those people. In a real sense, my work represents a life force embodying both journey and purpose. There is no beginning, no end to my odyssey—only the joy of seeking.
