Extraordinary photographs are often derived from exceptionally
ordinary objects, events, places and times. Imagery depicting ephemeral visions,
decicive moments, existing only time for a fleeting moment and in the creators mind
until they become lasting reality.
Since we can only view photographs in these singular time frames
they each represent a unique compression of a segment of what
was. They are another's perception, existing only as a representation to be vicariously
observed in the present and obsorbed and redifined by the viewers own perconceptions.
In this context, images present non-quantifiable perceptions that cannot be possessed,
mastered, or commanded.
Furthermore, the time and conditions of the photographs creation are in the past, compounding difficults
in reproduction outside of there present state, there defining moment. Through this synthesis, photography
excels in the creation of tactile memoriers that unveil the true essence of man or nature. The observer and
the space act as a function of time, the photographs synergy draws on the viewers preconceptions to reveal
the creation, its ambiguousness, fluidity and ephemeral state.
The selection of photographs shown on this site represent a small portion of my expansive body of work.
Over my extensive career I have photographed in excess of 36 countries and have works in numerous public and private collections.
