I am an artist working in the medium of photography.
Most of the work I do would be considered to be landscape photography — the sunrises and sunsets on the lake where our cabin resides in northern Wisconsin, or the boulders and rock formations of Joshua Tree where we go each year — but also the “landscapes” of the city where I live with its own man made architectural formations.
My goal from the moment of capture to the final print is to create an image which is my interpretation of the scene in front of my camera. My purpose is not to make a faithful representation of what I find, but to create a print based on the original scene augmented by my thoughts, feelings and experiences.
I do not consider a work completed until the image has been transferred to paper where it then becomes a tactile thing that can be touched, felt, or held up to the light — a physical manifestation of what I envisioned when I snapped the shutter.
