states in his Artist Statement, "As a photographer my primary objective
has been to find and reveal elements of nature that are both overlooked
and close at hand, reinforcing
the relevance of nature in our lives. I have found that even in today's
fragmented natural landscape there are still small places for
discovery. There are hidden microcosms all around us - by roadsides, in
weedy cracks of pavement, and just below the reflections
on waters' surfaces. As I seek out and probe into these areas of the
natural world I find inspiration for my photographic work. While my
intention has not been to focus exclusively on botanical subjects, I
find myself continually surprised how the world of
plants has influenced my art. Often
I find that my curiosity to see something through my camera arises
while pursuing interests unrelated to photography. Recently, while
taking a basic course on botany,
I found inspiration for my latest project involving botanical specimens
photographed through a microscope. This new project feels like a
natural evolution of my previous work with plants, taking me just beyond
my visual boundaries to a place that is unknown,
yet still somehow, familiar."
