Artists Statement The goal for my work is to make images which capture moments that are normally elusive and mysterious to us - the search to uncover the underlying elements. I generally work in black and white, because of the flexibility of this medium. Color work is limited to a few images that convey both textural context and color composition working in harmony. The majority of my work uses natural light. I prefer the gradient qualities of natural light and the chase to catch that moment when all elements work together. I like to challenge myself to fully explore the possibilities of any subject placing the image on the negatives and exploring the creative options in the darkroom through printing and toning - there is always more to uncover in an image for the persistent.
