My photography is inexorably linked with my writing. Both are informed by a fascination with stories and with the poetry of quiet moments. My preference has always been for smaller, more intimate stories, those that provide glimpses into the inner world of the main character, as opposed to those with grand plot twists. These are what I strive to capture with my camera. One of the most primal forces driving my art is a need to create and explore beauty, with its fragile and fleeting nature, as an antidote to the ugliness permeating our world. I tend toward self-portraits, although not exclusively, as a vehicle for telling these little stories, some personal, others fictitious; for capturing moments awash in gorgeous light; for exploring my relationship with myself and the world around me.
The same themes that appear in my writing tend to appear in my photography-- loss, longing, desire, beauty, love. These are the forces that drive me, the elements I seek to explore with my camera and with words.
