Taking photographs is a way for me to escape to go on a journey and search for the beauty within an ugly world. My camera allows me to share this and spread the beauty Iíve come upon. Most of my work is a mystery to me, even when itís completed; I never know what Iíll find or what Iíll shoot next. Only when Iíve finished a piece do I start to understand what has drawn my subject and myself together, and also the emotional connection I have with it. I look for simple compositions in complex situations. With my work I am hoping to show the elegance that can come from adversity with an emphasis on natural color and the effects of light. What the work becomes, or where it goes from there, is as uncertain to me as the reason I keep photographing these situations. I never fully understand my work and I donít know why I continue to photograph; however, I do know I love what I do, and most of all, I love what it does for me.
