As a boy my mother introduced me to what I would later learn is the “photographer’s eye.” She was aware of her surroundings and repeatedly drew my attention to things such as a cloud against a blue sky, or a cluster of fall color on a mountainside, or a unique person walking down the street. She loved people and nature and instilled in me a desire to search for and capture images that are beautiful and/or unique in color, form, texture, composition, light and shadow.
These early experiences deeply influence my work. I am a seeker of that which captivates and invites reflection. With camera in hand, I search for the beauty that surrounds us. I look for people in candid situations where an experience captures the person’s full attention with body posture and facial expression telling a unique story. Nature provides as much beautiful diversity as people. My hope is that the images I capture will engage the viewer so that reflection and inspiration result. I resonate with the journey my friend told me my photography documents: I am “In Search of the Sublime.”
