Artist Statement

I feel alive with a camera in my hand. I shoot mostly 35mm to get closer to my subjects.  With a macro lens, I can concentrate on details easily missed and give a more intimate view of my subject.  A kiwi is transformed into a celestial landscape; and a summer squash appears as delicate and sensual as the female form. 

 

Every step in the taking and making of a photograph is all part of my personal photographic experience.  Paying attention to detail, framing, exposure, printing in the darkroom; the handling and caring for my equipment; listening to the sounds of the shutter during exposure; even the scent of the film turns me on.  The practice of photography is technical, physical and emotional. It is part of my aliveness, and who I am.
