Artist's Statement

I show images that traditionally fall into the category of photography. Within this category are many sub-categories, eg: landscape, wildlife, portraiture, travel, still life, etc. Many of my fellow photographers specialize in one of these. I don't.

I'm a generalist. I show photographs that explore nearly every aspect of photography. One reason for this is that I don't go on "photo safaris" and shoot a whole bunch of pictures of one place. I shoot as I live and I try to have a camera within reach at all times.

If I were forced to pick one category to specialize in, I'd have to check the box marked "Other__". For me, that box would be called "photographs of coincidence" where two or more things are happening simultaneously as random acts of nature, or intentional acts of man.

 

The best photograph I ever took, I shot through the windshield of my car while siting at a "Go" light. I was brought out of my stoplight stupor by a gradual recognition of "Clouds of Coincidence" as seen in a glass building. As I stared ahead,the building seemed to dissolve before my eyes, but then, looking up I saw a cloud cut in half by the building! The light changed from red to green and I reached for my camera ....

The blare of honking horns made it feel like I was working "under fire". Ignoring the impatient drivers behind me, I composed my shot and squeezed one off.

For me, this photograph combines the two most important aspects of the art of photography: observation and recognition. When I got the slide back from the lab, I had only one question, "How many of these do I miss every day?"

My newest work is in the digital realm and will be out-put as archival inkjet and Lightjet prints. The only change will be the addition of my imagination to the chain of creativity that begins with the eye and the camera.
