Every artist hopes to convey something to the viewer. It is this something that the artist finds so fascinating about the world around them that it can not go untold. Early on I became fascinated with motion and how it effects our environment. The tiniest drop of water will send ripples undulating through the water for feet, a single gust of wind will make a tree sway long after it has stopped. Even an object sitting completely still can tell a tale of movement given the right perspective. My passion became bringing to film a view that it is not normally possible with the human eye. Finding a way to bring the viewer into a universe that has always existed but had remained unseen has become my artistic mission.
Photography makes it easy to "stop time," but capturing the essence of that moment is an entirely different task. To capture not only the ripple of the water, but also the interplay of light with its surface; relating the gentile roll of a flowers petal while amplifying the raw strength that holds this fragile structure together, this is where the challenge lay. These are what inspire me as an artist. Art is a funny thing. It is so much more than an object or a skill. Art is the one element of society that transcends all despite language, creed or race. It can be appreciated with the critical eye for its technique or by the casual observer for its beauty. It is my sincere hope that while exploring my work that you find for yourself the majesty that has inspired me.
“In photography there is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality.” --Alfred Stieglitz
