In today’s fast paced digital world and with the overwhelming pressure to be constantly connected, I use my photography as an escape to slow down and appreciate the visual possibilities of daily life. My observations capture the subtle and ordinary and then transform them into contemplations of the essence of light and shape. Allowing my eyes to wander, I not only experience places but also study the small, intriguing details of them. Whether it is a glass sculpture delicately hanging in front of a window or a corner of a concrete wall silhouetted by repetitious windows, I am compelled to document and reinvigorate everyday subjects. Focusing on basic elements of art--line, shape, form, texture--I search for a perspective that allows these elements to interact dynamically. I use traditional film cameras and create silver gelatin prints which takes time and patience while enhancing my tactile experience of creating.
