My photography is an emotional response expressed in the visual. Images become poetry, filled with emotion, offering connection with the world. This may be a vision of an object or a person whom we may never see or experience again as we do in that single moment. Photographers crave those golden hours just before sunset and after sunrise. Those special times allow lenses to capture the dramatic, bringing forth a unique dimensionality to objects, people and the heavens. What stands before the viewer becomes attractive, evoking emotional responses to what the camera has recorded.
I aspire to create images that impart the love I have for Rome. My annual trips there allow me to trick myself, for far too brief a time, that something permanently comes into my body, mind, language and soul that cannot be supplanted! Similar thoughts drive me when elsewhere as I walk the forests and streams of northern Michigan, the parks around Ingham County and the campus of Michigan State University.
I want to make images that capture the emotions of the place and space of what draws my attention in a way that conveys it to those viewing my work. That may be a cityscape with St. Peter’s Basilica rising above Rome or the dew rising on an open meadow early in spring. It is my hope that whenever my images are viewed, the observer is transported to that place, even for a moment, and the world is a portion more attractive because of it.
