Artist Statement

Entropy fascinates me. From the moment of our birth we are engaged in the process of growth and decay. The minute a building is erected it begins its’ own slow demise. There is almost always something that take its’ place, but that too is eventually lost.

I use my photography to freeze time. Change often happens so slowly that we cannot see it. In fact, we often are oblivious to it until it has already occurred. Photography helps slow the decay to a mere instant, and in the process, can reveal something completely different to what was expected.

It is my intent that my photography allow the viewer to be reflective of the day to day. To see the shifts that occur in our culture, our community, our spaces and ourselves. And hopefully, to see the inherent beauty in life.
