My two passions are architecture and nature. When I see a photograph, I see the light reflecting and refracting; I see strong lines leading my eyes into shadows, providing shape and dimension. I look at colors, complementing each other, and find the finest of detail. I credit the way I look at the world to Ansel Adams and Alfred Stieglitz, with a twist from Edward Gorey.
I want to show beauty where there is chaos. I want to show there can be beauty in structures, and in flowers that grow out of the cracks in the sidewalks. I want to show that even in this violent world, there is still beauty, there is still humor and there is still love. When I watch a sunset, I feel an overwhelming feeling of love. It fills me up and for that moment everything is good, nothing bad is happening. I try to get the sunset in as many photos as I can, whether it’s the backdrop of a building, or simply filling the frame. I want to give hope where there is none. I want to inspire confidence with strong lines of stability. I want to share that feeling of wholeness and sanity in this insane world.
