I am a fine art photographer living in Colorado. My images come from Wyoming, Colorado, Illinois, New York and wherever my wheels take me. I photograph with a Leica D-Lux 5 primarily. It is my go to camera because its size lends itself to portability without compromising image quality. Much of my work is done digitally, but I was trained in the darkroom and prefer to work there. I do not believe that traditional photography is dead. Rather it has moved away from the everyday into a category where it lives best; fine art.
I was born in Colorado and diagnosed with Osteogenesis Imperfecta by means of broken arms, legs and ribs. My life has never been an easy undertaking. However, this has afforded me the ambition to work harder for all that interests me. It has enabled me to see that life is an undertaking, not just something that happens to you.
The smallness of things is incredible for their simple magnificence. The beauty of life is to find the wonder of ordinary moments. Truly there are no dull or uninteresting things in life. The grotesque for the sake of grotesque is not worth mentioning; the lovely, never mentioned enough. The stories of this life are important and are told throughout eternity. It is for these stories that I photograph. Have you learned to appreciate both the quiet and remarkable moments of your life?
I have been asked many times what I photograph. I never respond with the word that I would like to, which is 'moments'. That seems too simple; despite the fact that it is anything but simple.
