For 50 years I have been making photographs with the same 35mm format camera and a single lens. I look for irony, poignancy, and metaphor and am interested in translucency, layers, veiled views, and glimpses of hidden worlds. Frames within frames and doors and doors within doors are recurring actors on my visual stage.
I am interested in how a photograph may conjure or emphasize a subject by its very absence from the image. The edges of the frame are as important to me as the middle, and what I choose to leave out of the frame is as crucial to the meaning and content as what I choose to leave in. Therefore, I compose very carefully in the camera and always print the full frame.
Ultimately my work is a desire to recognize the unseen. I seek to discover in the mundane a fragment of the world that has been looked at but not perceived. I want to allow the viewer a moment’s pause to see what is normally so easily missed.
