Photography is very personal. A photograph is not a frozen moment in time; it is an abstraction, an attempt by the photographer to show something special that he or she feels about the subject. In the best cases, it reveals an idealized or, hopefully, ideal world.

Beyond sharing with you how I see, or want to see, the world, I hope that my work shows you something new that triggers a feeling that allows you to experience the work in a way that is unique and special.
