I make photographs to express what I think, see and feel. They are expressions of my ideas, perceptions and emotions. I make them to both illuminate and investigate things I’m drawn toward and things I wonder about.
My photography is rooted in the process of exposing black & white film that I develop to make negatives and use for making prints. It’s an adventurous process that involves mechanical, electrical and chemical orchestration to produce a successful print.
So what do I think is a successful print? For me it’s a satisfying expression of what I was thinking, seeing or feeling about the subject matter of the photograph before I tripped the camera shutter. It’s an image that illuminates my perception or fuels my curiosity about it.
