Artist statement: 
  
A Wandering Eye
 
I have always been fascinated by the still photograph and the unique relationship it has to the continuous flow of life and time. Nothing else transforms a life experience into a virtual memory that can be held in your hands and shared with others. The details of a moment are lost in time, until the tangible information of a photograph can remain as its only evidence.
 
On my visual odyssey, I photograph to remember the moments I’ve seen that had some special significance to me. Sometimes the serendipity of life presents you with a private scene, something that is only for you to see. The photograph verifies to me that … yes, I was there… yes, I did see that and it was not some figment of my imagination. I get supreme enjoyment from looking at the intimate details of life, a wandering eye that is never satiated, always looking for something….hoping that I will be aware enough to recognize the moment when it presents itself.
 
Interpreting the parallel view of my eye and the camera, has been a way of expanding my visual observation and awareness, converting the things I’ve seen into symbols of sight. I photograph the simultaneous realities that coexist within my line of sight, the intersection of light and time, people and the space around them. From my perspective, life itself is the canvas and I am just a framer of its singular moments.
