The surreal potential of the everyday draws me toward that uncertain edge of what a photograph can or can’t reveal.  Our world dances between light and shadow, splendor and decay, individual and collective.  Blending into the City: I wait for that instant where both familiar and evolving backdrops frame a stage for unlikely urban theatre.  Within each moment, candid encounters reveal some-kind-of-truth that reads part fiction, part reality.

The act of making pictures allows momentary footing within an uncontrollable existence.  It’s the power to create a pause in a world – where we are all vital participants.  This pause is followed by the undetermined life of a print; then a chance to understand our place in the grandness of this chaotic scheme.
