ARTISTIC STATEMENT
As an artist, my photographs are a conversation between artist and viewer. They are metaphors to real life. Each image is an autobiography of observed experiences and collected memories based on my understanding of the world around me, influenced by the juxtapositions and interactions of the natural universe with the man-made world. They are a personal expression of visual storytelling, rooted in a desire to explore hidden truths, historic context and a sense of time. They are truthful fiction or factual untruths. My images are defined by light, inspired by imagination, informed by intuition, and motivated by a natural curiosity “to see more”.
