“Capturing the image is only part of the process. The computer and memory card may have replaced the chemicals of the darkroom, but my values have not changed. I painstakingly edit each image, bringing to print what I viewed through the lens. Over the years I have refined my technique and trained my eyes to see the world in a unique way. My images go beyond the basics, displaying a vision blended of light, motion, and viewpoint.”
