bits of time
light & shadows
a closer look
I am a self taught photographer. I have taken photos for over 40 years, from film to digital, from wet darkroom to the digital darkroom of the computer.
Photography is one way that I am able to experience the moment, suspend time and reconnect with myself. I am quite eclectic in the subjects I choose to shoot, anything is fair game. Often there is an unseen element in the image that was not originally seen through my viewfinder. It is later discovered when viewing my images. I wonder, did I subconsciously see it. Is that why I took the image?
My wish is that my imagery creates an intimate conversation that takes the viewer to a place of quiet contemplation because it is my visual representation of conversation and feelings.
My photography creates a legacy of all the sacred and beautiful things that I am privileged to experience in my time here. The fragility of life is a catalyst for me to do what I can to preserve it one frame at a time and in doing so I hope that it says that I too existed.
I was born in Norfolk, Virginia and raised in small North Carolina towns, I currently live in Fayette County, Georgia.
