ARTIST STATEMENT

As an artist my objective is to capture more than just a pretty picture. Photography is often seen as documentary: it’s expected that what the viewer sees is a true representation of what the photographer saw.  

However, as an artist, I seek to create images with a sense of place, interest, moment, drama, beauty. Through today’s digital darkroom, I embrace the freedom to shape an image to realize the full potential of a scene, with no apologies.

What it felt like, NOT what it looked like! (NATO bombing range in Spain, 1978)
