Artist's Statement

I have had the urge to create at least as long as I've had the dexterity to perform the requisite tasks. Yet I've had little desire to render.

Before I discovered photography my successes were mostly three-dimensional. I've never had much interest in applying pigment to a surface with an implement (painting, etc.), and any early semi successful attempts were always completely nonrepresentational.

When I finally discovered photography, I also found the reason for my lack of interest in the other 2-d art forms. It was man's total inability to replicate the intricate detail of reality. Photography is the answer to that dilemma.

It is for that reason that I find it particularly difficult to relate to those who consider photography to be a second class medium. In my mind it is the quintessential medium, and in some ways the most difficult to use. Imagine telling a painter that he cannot alter reality. Consider the probable mediocrity of his results, if he is limited to the use of an entire scene, or continuous portions there of.

On the other hand almost anyone can purchase and operate a camera. Fortunately 99% of the time the result is an image that does nothing more than document. The successful photographer is the one who can draw more than recollection or recognition from the viewer.

If I can cause the viewer to experience an emotion beyond recognition my photograph has been successful. I find that I am most adept at eliciting emotion with photographs that capture the interaction of line, form, color, and light.
