What Photography Means to Me

Photographs are objects of preservation and memories, of desire and seduction, and about ideas and the human spirit. To create an object that embodies such significance is one of the greatest delights in my life.

Photographic images are not a necessity to life, they are a luxury that enriches our existence. They are a result of scientific experimentation in physics, chemistry, and now computer science, producing something that makes us feel; whose scientific roots are

rarely even registered, hidden behind the "magical" reaction our brains have to the imagery. Only the professional may look at a photo and deconstruct the technical aspects of its construction. Soft focus, the choice of monochromatic colour, high key, low key, framing, and motion blur register as a visual language that expresses an idea and elicits a feeling in the viewer.

I create images to delight the senses, to preserve fleeting moments that make up cherished experiences, and as a visual means through which to communicate an insight, knowledge or question.
