“When people ask me what equipment I use, I tell them my eyes.” Anonymous

“I am a regionalist. I photograph the everyday, the familiar in unfamiliar places; traveling back roads across rural landscapes and meeting people and towns along the way. This is where my heart lives. I am attracted to the simplest elements of color and design, the ironic, sometimes nostalgic, documenting structures and places, and often given to futile attempts to capture purely emotional or visual inclinations. Dorothea Lange said ‘The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.’ That has held true. With each image I discover a little more about me, both photographer/artist and as a person. I feel myself moving toward something, an understanding, a refinement.”
