As a child I was fascinated with the magic of the camera. There was
something mystical, almost holy about a piece of time captured that
could be held and could evoke memories and emotions so intensely. I use
the camera intuitively, not always sure of my intention. Of every image
I make there is a place that looks like this in the deepest part of me.
…Sometimes I find myself there unexpectedly and the going there can
only be reached without thought. These photographs are my inner
experience made indelibly visible. It’s discovering magic, accepting
the unusual, communicating with shadows…finding myself in that place on
the verge of waking, where we are “most vulnerable and open to
realities of the spirit.” If an image can move you, affect you, even
disturb you, then it’s caused some aliveness, some shift in your
cosmos, a stirring in your soul. I am forever seeking that elusive
awakening. My images are my voice, sometimes a whisper, sometimes not.
