EMPTINESS -/+ LIGHT


Through photography I can observe and interpret the world around me. My determination is to “scratch” at the surfaces of things, and to make a record of my impressions. To that end, I examine the old and the new, the natural and the artificial, the physical and the spiritual, the sacred and the profane.


Each image is a part of an evolving body of work. I don’t pursue a singular photographic language or adhere to any particular rules or conventions. The conditions surrounding every subject are different, and I search for ways to capture the feeling of each one. If there is consistency in my work, it is a process of experimentation and a certain level of ambiguity.


Most of the photographs were taken in the southwestern United States (where I grew up), during my travels throughout Europe, and in different parts of Japan and Tokyo (where I currently reside).
