I use photography, and the embedded marks and symbols, to reconstruct recollections of time and place. For me, defining a sense of place is the allure of the photographic image. The instant, when time and place seem to merge to catch a moment. But it is the imperceptible connections I seek to define...when something catches your peripheral vision, but is gone when you turn for a longer glimpse. My photographs aim to force the viewer to look beyond the obvious.... to be present and aware of the physical and spiritual light within the subtleness...to reveal the essence beyond the normal visual spectrum.
