The function of art is to explore the particulars that lie within (and beyond) the boundaries of our physical experience. In this sense I find the photograph a means of discovery rather than a vehicle for imposing a predetermined intent. Art should impart a special way of seeing, of leading the observer into the mystery by which we assemble the scattered moments of our reality. By this remembering we come to know something of our human dimensions. This often entails confronting the very ordinary but significant elements of our lives which are frequently discarded because they are considered unimportant. The visible world suggests another one and defines the edges of our reality. This is the world I explore and wish to share in my work.
