i.e., Books that render a photographic life informed by M.A. & B.F.A. degrees at Wayne State University, commercial image production on east-, west-, mid-, & gulf-coasts, in addition to study under numerous working professionals in Santa Fe, New Mexico. These collections are infused with curiosity and the lyricism found in everyday life; ranging from the backyard to various corners of the planet.
Motivated with a deep sense of curiosity my images attempt to transcend everyday life by seeing order amongst chaos, geometry, light, color, and gesture. Henri Cartier-Bresson and the idea of the decisive moment is another core influence. What usually starts out as a study in design can instantly change to a photograph, as naturally occurring figure movements and gestalt activate space. Capturing a moment with visual flow is essential, but producing visual poetry is the objective. Ultimately I ask questions about people, represented literally as figure in cultural ground, or as metaphor via found objects & situations.
