Looking at a photograph is observing the world through the photographers eyes. You are for a moment swept into their life, as their personality is unavoidably intermingled with their work. While holding the viewfinder to their eye, they are making choices as to what will appear in their photograph, what they want you to see and experience. Being a photographer, I am giving you a sample, a peek at what I see, through the photographs I create. My camera gives me the ability to capture the beauty and the surprising nature of the world around me. Some photographs I take express my emotions, while others allow me to express the curiosity and fascination I have for the aesthetics of light, reflections, color and detail. I see a world that is complex and full of design, awaiting artistic interpretation.
