I make images or photographs because the process places me in a state of consciousness whereby I can only achieve through mediation. It is in this state of acute awareness that I can see the world and myself for what they are.
It is through photography where I can create images of self-expression, to determine those hidden attributes of my soul and to express my sense of the world around me. It is though the image making meditative process and the application of the art of seeing that I get a clearer understanding of myself and of my world.
Photography enables me to examine portions of my life at a transcendent level, to talk with and engage people I would not otherwise meet, to capture the mysteries of nature and to capture how people really are.
The use of the camera open windows for me to enter into uncharted and unrealized experiences, to find that subtle area of prying self-expression and to find a network of relationships in nature where new metaphoric images come to light from the darkness.
The image’s subject comes to me while in the meditative state which is feed by an impulsive and overwhelming desire to participate in the mysterious that unfold around me. I search for the unknown and unknowable. I look for the light within the shadows, the uncommon in the common, that decisive moment where the story is not at first obvious.
