About

Over the past three years I have been photographing forms and shadows, seeking out images with interesting line, shape and texture. I find these images in many different places --, in the woods, behind buildings, under railroad bridges, in the sky, in a frozen pond. I believe that good photography can happen anywhere and that all subjects are equally important.  I use photography to improve upon reality, to distill the world into a more pleasing form. I am not interested in showing you the world exactly as I see it, but rather manipulating the idea of the world until it becomes something interesting and more meaningful.

I photograph to improve reality.

I am now ready to turn this work into a show and book. I want to produce a 40 page photo book by fall 2012 and a gallery show by the end of the year. Projected cost including gifts to benefactors (that’s you) is $7,000. That is my proposal: I need donations to realize this dream. I invite you to look at the work, and then decide if you believe it to be worthy of your help. Be sure to check out my blog to see the work I have been doing recently.

Thank you for looking.
