Artist statement

Photosynthesis
(from the Greek [photo-], “light,” and [synthesis], “putting together”, “composition”

Photosynthesis.   With its fifty shades of green lushness, and colors and smells that awaken the senses, the effects of photosynthesis are everywhere you look where I live.  Its presence nourishes our body, providing rest and rejuvenation for our soul.  
 
My photography is a form of photosynthesis: I find my subject, savor the scene, take in the light and the photograph is my interpretation. So equally my ART IS LIFE, produced by my synthesis, my camera and my point of view.    

A photograph straight from the camera, a scene of incredible beauty, would amaze most persons.  I want to take that delight even further, adding digital effects making that photograph extraordinary.  I don't simply want to photo-copy the landscape, I want to explore its attraction.

Often I’m asked while photographing what I’m looking at?  They observe as I describe the clouds, or the amazing light witnessed before me. Photographic vision is the aptitude for discovering beauty in what can be overlooked as every day and ordinary.      

Familiarity with the area, knowing the sun and the moon, the wind and tides, allows me to be in the right place at the right time, often visiting multiple times to get it just right.  

Photography has been my passion for my entire life.  My mentors have been master printers and accomplished artists.  I’ve studied at home and across the globe, at the prestigious Maine Media Workshops, Santa Fe Photography Center, and L’atelier de Saint-Rémy in France.  While in residency at Vermont Studio Center I worked beside artists of all persuasions. I continue to be inspired by the time we live it, a modern day renaissance of new photo materials and processes.  

Keep growing,
