The way out is the way in. . We journey without to journey within. . Seeking natural places of magnificence, we contemplate the power of nature and all of its overwhelming grandeur. Rendered seemingly insignificant by the near-infinitude of creation we may come to better accept our own annihilation at the end of this pilgrimage we call our lives. Simultaneously we may find solace in the fact that others will endure without us and that nature, seemingly eternal, will outlast us all. We may experience a sense of forever, beyond even geologic time, to...

Hopefully, there ’s water nearby; no matter how active or still it is, I’m mesmerized by it. I’m always looking at the sky, the horizon, and water for information and inspiration.

A Call To Connection

. There's something mysterious about many of the images you are about to see. Unaltered images look altered. Altered images look unaltered. It's a sign of the times. How do we know what we know? Is seeing believing? Is believing seeing? Perhaps the questions are more important than the answers because they start a never-ending process of inquiry. This work is a quest for perspective.

Photography itself was an experiment...
