statement

Photography for me is an attempt to distill the overall chaos of my thoughts and experiences into visual form. Rather than merely a quest for a good picture, photography is a system for seeing and understanding. Certain moments in life give us a sneak peek into the sublime. If we are moving too fast or if our minds are too busy, the subtleties of the world around us will be overlooked. Through photography, I observe and celebrate these little events. Wrestling with the negatives in the darkroom or pointing to the subtleties on the computer screen, post-processing carries with it moments of reflection. The Alchemy of ink, light, and looking brings me to a higher understanding of lifeís experiences.
