Artist's Statement

I live my life through photography, and believe them to be one and the same. I do not think of photography as a way to tell stories, nor do I wish to play the role of storyteller. I do not think photographs have a storytelling capacity — but they may have the ability to help make their viewers, storytellers.

I photograph because I can, I want to, and I must.

I saw something wonderful. Let me show it to you.
