I feel most like myself when behind the camera. Though I am alone, I am at ease in my isolation and energized by my connection to the physical world. As I observe the world through my lens I am able to see things differently. I see beauty in abstract lines and geometric forms. I appreciate the linear definition of space, intersections of lines and shapes, textures creating curves and direction, patterns on buildings, and edges and borders. I try to capture interesting places and moments in time and make them beautiful, but also try to infuse them with the sense of vulnerability and fallibility that I believe is inherent in humanity and nature, as well as man-made forms.
