I had started working on a blog a while back and rather than being afraid of the challenge I actually enjoyed thinking about the work I was doing, why and how I got to this point. Unfortunately I got lost along the way, trying to move between the visual and the verbal. This may have been a good thing though, because over the past few years I have come to approach my work with more clarity and understanding of what I am seeing and how I am feeling about it.
Most recently, and perhaps more importantly, I realized what it was about photography that meant so much to me - it was the expression of my vision. It was about sharing things I loved, confronting what concerned me, what I found ironic or unusual, and things I felt worth sharing. I see it and can speak of it in a more informed and personal way now.
What I wrote when I first decided to have a blog still applies. So, I again invite you to share this "new" experience with me as I discuss my photography and the path I've followed while becoming and moving forward as an artist. The blog continues in support of my work as I move through new ideas and future projects.
