Artist's Statement

I endeavor to see the story when I’m in the moment of capturing an image, try to transcend its history. And in that moment, I often reflect on whether anyone has stood at the same spot I did and if so, who were they? Did she or he see what I saw? The possibilities are endless. Photography is the quiet observance of the fast-moving world in which human connection has been untwined to the last strand but in that tethering we see and feel the world upon which we tread. We’re passing through this time; I’m simply a vessel whose strength is the observation. I want my world to be beautiful, but I can’t force it. I want those who see my work to slow down and reflect. That’s what photography is to me: Reflections on this passing moment, and somewhere within the casting of that light there is beauty.
