blog

Perhaps the greatest attribute of a photograph is that it captures a moment in time, one that can never be repeated. Celebrating that aspect of photography is the purpose of this blog.

On here I will be posting some of my older images, from 2005 on, ones that are no longer featured on this website, and will be sharing my inspiration for them with you by including the artist statements that were written back when the images were made. Perhaps you will see patterns in my work, or an evolution of it over time, or notice something else that you might like to point out to me. Regardless, I hope you will enjoy sharing the images and statements with me, as we celebrate and explore moments from the past, frozen in time.
