Archival Ink Jet Print

I am continually learning about visual perception. My goal is to incorporate my expanding view of the world and art into the tangible and hopefully enduring pieces that I create. Creation, in whatever form or activity, is a necessary element of my attempt at a balanced existence.

My approach to photography is straightforward. I photograph for the pleasure of seeing the world encapsulated in the frame. It is exciting to walk the streets of a city or other environment being hyper-aware of the uniqueness of a place. I respond to the visual, and emotional stimuli that I encounter. Puzzling pieces together from a three-dimensional world and forming photographs in two dimensions is a constant stimulation. I’m involved in recording the state of the urban landscape. My interest is influenced and shaped by multiple factors such as: art & architecture, culture, demographics, affluence, urban decay and redevelopment. The interaction of decoration, beautification, deterioration, and messaging continually fill my compositions with exciting imagery. In recent years the phenomena of the ever-changing Paint-Tag-Paint cycle, which appears on most city surfaces, has attracted my eye.

I spend a considerable amount of time ruminating over all the work I have gathered. Part of this is the judgement and editing cycle to choose what images move on and part is about the enigma of why some of the images don’t make the cut. I think I learn from this reflection. Once I determine the successes, the challenge is to shape the images into beautiful print presentations. My ultimate goal is to make effective compelling images that sing.

I am quite excited about sharing this body of work and hope that the viewers will share in this excitement.
