Artist's Statement

"Nature creates the most extraordinary yet simple patterns, some lasting for just brief periods of time, rarely seen, before being altered and reworked by new forces and lighting conditions. My photography preserves some of these natural designs, recording the intimacy of the discovery past the composition’s sometimes brief existence. These photos commemorate the beauty in simple observances that might otherwise be passed by unnoticed."

"Since I was very young photography has been of interest to me, even at 8 or 10 years old while taking family photos a few natural abstracts would appear amidst the typical vacation shots. In the 60’s I worked in black and white with a 2 1/4" format camera, developing negatives and prints in my own dark room. Later in the 70’s I started exploring colour photography but for the most part my images have remained in the square format."
