Artist Statement

Photography for me is a journey, with curiosity as my roadmap. The images I create help me to understand and appreciate the world as it presents itself to me.

Inspired by a quote from Anais Nin, I want to share not the obvious but what we usually are unable to see. The best way for me to achieve this, and to communicate my thoughts and feelings about my images, is through stories: Pic Tales, Haiku, and Photo Essays / Editorials.

Although different in nature, each of these formats allow me to express my observations about the natural and built environments, and the importance and impact of human interaction with their environments and with each other; helping me to understand why we are as we are, and how we are developing, building, and sometimes destroying our own future.
