To quote Gary Winogrand I take photographs of things to see what they look like photographed. This is actually very profound. Photographs can never depict exactly the way we see things. It might be depth of field perspective dynamic range color or several other things that might influence the image. That is why for me photography is exciting. You never quite know when that seemingly mundane subject in front of you might turn out to be something special. Ive been photographing for over 30 years and Im not always looking for pretty things. To me its more important that images speak. I printed in a traditional darkroom for over 30 years. But time moves on and now its all digital. I want everyone to know that there is not a great picture button in Photoshop. Lots of craftsmanship imagination and knowledge is still required to make exciting images. My images are all printed on fine art paper and aluminum using archival standards.
