Artist Statement

My relationship to my environment is voyeuristic. The choice of imagery is diverse but the sentiments remains the same. The body of work is about a fleeting atmospheric moment. There is allure in that glimpse, an inkling that there is something sublime in the ordinary. My photographs represent everywhere and nowhere.  The compositions can be common but hold a private exchange between me and the camera.

I use a medium format film camera to capture these images. Loading the camera, advancing the film and unloading it are a ritual I enjoy. Each print I make is unique, using an alternative process, Hand Coated Palladium Prints, I am drawn to the pathological nature of the ritual of printing my images. Making the prints with my hands is a critical part of the creative process.
