Artist Statement

My aim is to transcend the ordinary by means of the ordinary. Striving to reach this goal photographically, I use easily found subject matter, natural light and a minimum of equipment and chemicals when shooting and printing my black and white silver gelatin images. My style comprises simplicity of composition, the elimination of extraneous detail, and an intimate perspective. Images with strong value contrast as well as those with minimal contrast appeal to me. I want to design and capture moments of an enhanced stillness representing an opposing force to the freneticism of contemporary life.
