My body of work for the most part, is finding that special calm and simplicity among chaos. Before making a capture, I become still and connected with absolute presence with the famous quote by photographer Minor White in mind, "Be still with yourself, until the object of your attention affirms your presence."
In a sense, the capture is made when I feel permission is given back from nature itself which is a very powerful way of being. Hopefully the energy and connection within each image can be experienced by you as well.

100% FILM NOT DIGITAL
All black and white images were captured on film and NOT digitally altered. Films I like to use are Fuji Across, Fuji Neopan, Konika Infrared, Kodak Infrared. Most images were taken on a medium format Bronica SQ-Ai 6cmx6cm system. Some were taken with a Holga 6cmx6cm camera and will be indicated in the description.
ABOUT THE FINE ART PRINTS
The film is processed by the artist in the darkroom by hand. Images are drum scanned for the highest resolution possible and then printed on Fujicolor Crystal Archive Pearl Paper. Pearl-like crystals give silver halide prints a specific luster, creating a distinctive pearl-like appearance which produces a beautiful luster look. Prints are 100% archival and are extremely resistant to aging with a lifespan well over 100+ years.
