I think of my photographs as love letters. It all starts with an inexplicable attraction to someone or something, a welling up of appreciation, a sparkle of excitement, and finally, a sense of discovery. If the connection happens, then the resulting photo might reveal something essential of the person and/or place, hinting at what is underneath. To the extent that I succeed, my photographs are character studies in picture form. I am pleased when I think some larger story is being communicated/conveyed.
Seeing the extraordinary in ordinary moments.
