“The images I make today are the result of over 30 years of exploration and discovery in my quest to understand how we are affected by the world around us and how we perceive our environment. It is my desire to express to the viewer the essence of my experience in these places – to evoke within them the same emotion I felt at the time of the exposure. Rather than show you what these places look like, I want to show you how they feel. It is my hope that, in looking at my work, you may share with me the experience of these places.”
