Amongst other things, I count myself as a sysadmin, photographer, and fiddler. I am drawn to the quiet spaces that I see first with my heart and only then through the lens of my camera. Photography is a contemplative activity for me, from start to end. My family has learned to wait for me as I find an image amongst the trees, and I find another peace as I develop the film, print the picture in the darkroom. I am honored to have been allowed to see the places that I have photographed.
I work entirely in classic black and white film, primarily on vintage medium format cameras. As an escape from my daily duties in the digital realm, there has been only minimal crossing of my work onto computers. I enjoy performing the entire artistic process, from imagining the picture to mounting it in its frame.
