In creating photographic images, my desire is to engage and elicit in the observer a sense of place and emotion; a slight tug to the viewer's sense of reality. I choose places of abandonment most often because though these places appear at first to be void of life, upon closer inspection, they are in fact full of discarded artifacts representing countless lives, stories, and dramas played out in spaces once sought out and filled with life; they are testaments to survival.

In images where vacant buildings were photographed, or even those taken in a meadow or garden, shelter from disorder, and survival amid abandonment is represented, as is a sense of waiting for the story to continue. I hope to create a sense of anticipation and a wish to know how the 'story' ends. The darker images perhaps conjuring the suspense of something not quite right happening just out of view of the frame; creating expectation and a desire to peer around the boundary to satisfy one's anxious curiosity.

There is something magical about capturing an instance in time through photography. The image becomes a moment that can be held and relived through a visual trigger. With the advent of digital technology the artist is able to capture more information in each frame and can then draw out these details and colors; the contrasting dark and light that would normally lay hidden. Each opportunity I get to work with an image I have taken is like opening a treasure chest of possibilities.

I sincerely hope the viewer enjoys my work, even if it strikes a discordant note or makes one feel slightly uncomfortable. That an image inspired feeling is what is desirable to me, I will let the witness decide what the narration might be.
