My most recent photographic work is highly autobiographical. It is comprised of places where I have lingered, always in awe, sometimes in bewilderment or incredulity. I liken my images of colored light to musical notations without sound, contemplative pauses for emotional exploration. The decay and disarray of the contructed landscape motivates me to either alter its reality or extract its mezmerizing patterns. As for the poetry that exalts me in nature, its complexity, perfection and grandness limits me to only extract its essence. My photographs are quests to understand mysteries.
