Statement

Photography inspires me to reexamine the apparent world, to focus on, frame and connect with my surroundings. It provides a unique opportunity to observe, represent and ultimately recall the richness that often lies latent or overlooked in the commonplace world around us.


My photographs represent my own experience of place, both in terms of the personal encounter and aesthetic choices. The process of discovery, selection, extraction and the creation of the image is as personally important in my practice as the final image itself. I am interested in transmitting the sensation of the place as I have experienced it, its undefined possibility to evoke, in the tension between what I uncover and the associations it may suggest. I hope to create an imagery through the subject of the photograph that is intriguing and that reaches beyond immediate appearance to become both a revelation of the latent and recognition of the familiar for the viewer. My intent is to discover and articulate that essence of the original scene - some intrinsic aspect of vantage point, light, color, tone or organization of form and space - that transcends the recorded moment to create a sense of recognition for the viewer while remaining faithful to the original scene.
