" I really believe there are things that people would not see unless I photographed them." (Diane Arbus, 1972)
Artist statements do not compel the viewer to think more or less highly of the image. It either moves you or it doesn't. You may not even know why but it really doesn't matter.I am motivated to capture images from a place within me that is unique to each of us. What matters is whether they speak to you.
My photographic gifts fall into two areas: Capturing the moments depicting relationships of the subject(s) within their environment. Such as this image taken at a local festival.
The other is knowing that what I see before me must be captured or it will be lost in just that way forever.
