I often find my biggest inspiration through travelling and seeing people and places through fresh eyes. This is a show of my work through travels in the United States, France, Italy, Switzerland, Namibia, and England.

About

Is it possible to stop time? Can a person actually stop for just a moment to notice, to realise, to contemplate their surroundings? Their perspective? Is fine art photography doomed because of digital imaging? Is everyone a photographer now because they have a camera on their phone? These are just some of the questions I pursue in my practice.

My sources of inspiration are as varied as the types of images that I create. I adore the canon of master photographers in the early 20th Century like Stieglitz, Steichen, Weston, Adams, Cartier-Bresson, et. al. I sometimes wish to have been one of their contemporaries because of my beginnings in black and white film photography. I did embrace digital photography and use it primarily, although I am currently experimenting with alternative analog processes.

My focus is to show the viewer split-second moments that go unnoticed. Unnoticed because of our own distraction or because they enter the white noise of life. I look to embrace those moments, as I find them intrinsically beautiful.
