Why do I photograph? Because I see what needs to be photographed. That is not a statement of conceit but an homage to the masters. Photography is about seeing, whether you “still yourself until the object of your attention affirms your presence” (Minor White) or recognize “in the fraction of a second, the significance of an event” (Henri Cartier-Bresson). Whatever the circumstance, my intent is to capture an image that will transmit to the viewer my response to the subject. I strive to respond to the world around me whether I am in a city full of people or solitary on a mountain.
