I define the work that I am currently engaged in as “the art of structure.” Although the subject matter in my photographs are primarily large buildings, my focus is not with the architecture. Rather, it is the exploration of how a structure relates to its environment. My interest in this idea is a direct result of how I tend to observe the dynamic balance of the natural world as it interacts with the ordered structure of man-made environments.
For me, photography is an inherent extension of how I see, and it enables me to capture and reproduce what I have envisioned. But it is not just the visual aspect of photography that inspires me — I have always been intrigued with the mechanical functions of the camera. Whether I choose to use a plastic toy camera or a technologically advanced digital SLR, each device offers a unique set of challenges that require complete understanding in order to capture a precise recording of an image, as well as achieve a particular aesthetic.
Ultimately though, it is neither the equipment nor the process of taking a photograph that are of the greatest consequence for me. In the end, what really matters is that the finished image tells a story, makes a connection, or reveals a deeper truth. That is what compels me to make photographs, and it is what I aim to achieve every time I press the shutter.
All of my photographs are printed using pigment inks on acid-free photorag papers. Print sizes range from 8" x 10" matted to 24" x 30" matted. Prices vary according to size.
