Photography stirs emotion. Pictures are more powerful than words. When we look at a photograph, we focus on what we see, think or feel, and ... we may even ask, "why?" My images are a reflection of the world around me. My camera captures images of curiosity, self-expression, relationships, chances, beginnings, and most important--images that tell stories.
My choice of subject comes from a place of intuition, and is fuelled by an impetuous desire to partake in the stories that unfold around me. I seek the unknown.I look for the light within the shadows, the stories that are not at first obvious, and the uncommon in the common.
I photograph architecture and landscapes, attempting to illustrate abstract, evocative scenery as a motif to epitomize the idea of imagined space, a reminder that what I create through the viewfinder is only real to me.
I photograph people in their environments, because I am curious of what lies behind their eyes, where they have been, and where they hope to go.
I am fascinated by the power and seduction of food. Culinary artists - chefs - emphasize color, texture, shape and volume, as it is creatively presented. My images communicate the power of food's seduction, allowing for meditation on the photographic medium itself.
I am inspired to compose by the contrast of light and dark, while I use the changing light of day to arouse the mood of my dreams. I find myself interested in the results of immersing myself in the story, and recording my own reactions and actions to my world. The photographs come from that immersion.
