These few words hopefully explain how I understand and interpret the medium of fine art photography. The appreciation of any piece of fine art lives between the known (viewer's rational response) and the unknown (viewer's emotional response). Throughout my imagery whether in color or Black and White, I display my interpretation of that 'in-between'. These pages reflect my vision. It is widely known that a person's art portrays something about them personally. These images, therefore, are my voice delivering my message to each observer - uniquely!
Two quotations that steer my photography the most - Aaron Siskind - "We look at the world and we see what we have learned to believe is there. We have been conditioned to expect...but, as photographers, we must learn to relax our beliefs." Elliott Erwitt - "To me, photography is an art of observation. It's about finding something interesting in an ordinary place... I've found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them."
I hope you enjoy viewing what I have 'seen' so far. There will always be new images added and older ones archived or removed so visit often. Should you wish to buy a print or license an image, please 'contact' me. Print editions are limited to 10 pieces.
