I am a documentary/fine art photographer. As all photographs are made in the present, they immediately become documents about the past. I organize reality by looking through the frame of the camera, studying visual relationships of anything and everything that is in front of me: people, objects and environments. I am interested in the transformation which an image undergoes from real-time reality, to the final printed, and framed presentation.

The camera works to document the external, but more importantly, magnifies the mysteries which exist within oneself” How does emotion impact memory? How does the familiar slide into the unknown? How do we transform what we’re seeing into something vital and essential about the world in which we live and we share with others?
