An artist's statement is tough because it implies the artist recognizes their own style and constantly pursues that vision. Being a beginner with a hand-me-down, decade-old camera, I would shoot what I thought looked good, not necessarily stopping to think why I found a particular subject or framing engaging. It wasn't until a friend commented that I frequently featured individuals, isolated in their environment that I ever toyed with the idea that I, myself, might have a "style". I guess it's my way of providing context to a scene, be it as simple as giving scale in the case of "Arches" or posing "who" "what" "why" questions in "Smile". If nothing else, I hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoyed taking, editing (and also viewing) them.
