A B O U T
I am a photographer who is concerned with where I am.
The “where” in life interests me profoundly. Place is a reflection of our common humanity. We shape it and in turn it shapes our thoughts, outlook and motivation. In my world, the photography of place encompasses all photography. By definition, I believe that the act of photographing volume, space and form in their intended contexts, is to attempt to gain understanding of “what you are looking at”.
It begins by gathering within the camera frame the specific nature of color, materiality and atmosphere. It culminates in an uncluttered scene that communicates a sense of clarity around the nature of person and place.
“.... I sense Light as the giver of all presences and material as spent Light. What is made by Light casts a shadow and the shadow belongs to Light....”
Louis I. Kahn, Architect
“.... There is no closed figure in nature... every shape participates with another and one thing rhymes with another and light gives them shape....”
Henri Cartier-Bresson, Photographer
