Artist Statement

I’ve always been fascinated by light; finding that quality of light unique to every scene; be it sunlight or a derivative of sunlight; the incandescent, the fluorescent, or the mercury street lighting that are found everywhere; all of which are the result of fallen sunlight; from coal-fired plants to the wind turbines that power our modern world.

Photography is at once both a science and an art; a study in light and time. In the moment that the shutter is open, the camera captures how things are, sparks the imagination to wonder how things used to be, and what the future may bring.

My background is firmly rooted in science and technology – it’s the curiosity of the world around me that drives me to make the images I make.
