overview

When I was seven, my parents gave me a plastic box camera and one roll of black and white film to use on a family outing to the Los Angeles Zoo. With only twelve moments to capture, I thought I had better use them wisely and it was a sad thing to get to the end of the roll. However I still enjoyed the feeling of pressing the button and continued to snap away and could not leave the reptile house until I had snapped it for every single animal in the building. It took forever to get the images back from the store and it was very exciting to open the envelope and relive the adventure.

Whenever I’m out and about, I don’t think much about the activity of shooting but rather the feeling of being wherever I am and capturing those moments, like the little boy at the zoo. I still can’t wait to get home and see the images I’ve captured and the feeling of reliving those moments. In a world that very often doesn’t make any sense, we all feel a kind of emptiness deep within at one time or another. Photography literally puts it all into perspective and I’m trying to create images that help to fill that void. I make it possible for the viewer to live the adventure with me.

To paraphrase Bob Dylan, he once said that silence is the thing that people are most afraid of. I want my images to evoke silence. Our lives are filled with constant commotion and confusion. All of the electricity in our lives creates more noise in our ears and our minds. Then you see one of my images and it stops, maybe for just a moment, maybe longer, but for a short time all is quiet. The inner dialogue is still and there is you and nothing. Embrace it!

about the artist

Because much of my work is travel related, I’m often asked the question “where is your favorite place?” My answer to this is Earth. Earth is my favorite place. The richness of diversity that our planet has to offer is overwhelmingly fascinating and that is my focus; to spend my life cataloguing as much of it as I can and above all have fun with the experience. Over time, I have created an ever expanding collection of images that can be described as eclectic and whimsical while still being cultured and vibrant.
