I photograph feeling.
I believe in passion, direction, and illumination. I know others practice detachment, I know others believe a picture tells a story. I think there is much more to it than that. I think that making a photograph is a deeply personal and intimately engaging process for both parties. A good photograph captures a conditioned moment, a moment that arises from the emotional states, thoughts, and desires of subject and artist. It does not encapsulate an entire narrative or even a fragment of one. The viewer gets to project their narrative onto the photograph. My job is to crystallize that moment to the extent that I can. To invest it with the passion and attention it deserves. To illuminate.
