It is difficult for me to communicate in words what I am attempting to achieve in my photographs. Take a close look at my work. My work speaks for me. It conveys my fascination with the simplicity of light, shape, tone and color. My focus is not on any specific subject, only on the pleasure I experience in creating unusual and compelling images.
