I am a storyteller. Whether you find yourself on a hike into the mountains, hanging out on a front porch or a long bus ride in the 3rd world, you will at some point find me employing a tradition of more ancient men. I have yet to create art on walls of desert sandstone. Instead I write light to silver & silicon and scrawl words on paper. James Joyce believed in telling of the universal through the particular as he did in his masterpiece about a single day in Dublin. Henri Cartier Bresson was known for capturing a single moment in time, Joan Miró for using light and form in a surreal manner far from the the bourgeois pinnings of art. Hemingway believed it takes a lifetime rich in experience and most importantly dedication to develop ones craft. Such masters can guide us in our own pursuits as we build our own craft, our own vision.
These may be my words & photos yet is my hope they are not my stories but yours also, that they have struck a deeper chord within you as they did me and that some of these moments are universal. I feel that in photography the trick is to see through the wide open eyes of a 12 year old yet at the same time speak with the experience of a lifetime.
