Artist's Statement

Photography is what I happen to use as a tool. The chemical process, not so reliable as the digital process, constantly surprises me in its magic. Whether it is the anticipation of pulling the negative out of the fixer and being energized by the latent image or whether it is the search of a new idea, the process of creation is simply irreplaceable. More importantly, the process of creation allows me to define myself by my ideas and to be free within myself as opposed to defining myself by my possessions.
