Statement

I photograph as a way of traversing the invisible bridge between what is there and what else is there. Most of us have encountered a moment or a place in which the layers obscuring nature's mysteries seem a bit thinner than elsewhere. Such places draw me in, encouraging me to linger and feel. Often compelled to return to the same subject again and again, new truths await at each visit, nature's answers immutable yet kaleidoscopic. My photographs explore a nature that speaks simultaneously of ephemera and permanence, passages and sanctuary, reflections and revelations. They are signposts, reminders, and guides to the experiences possible when we are truly still.
