Whereas the experience of music takes place in a series of moments, its essence lingering uniquely in the listener’s mind, the photographic image captures an instant the photographer alone saw. In that photo, however, we can explore the moment, freeze the details, and ultimately fulfill what I believe is everyone’s desire: to share that beauty and somehow defy the passing of time.
Many of my favorite photos were taken while driving, sometimes at very fast speeds. Often, I will re-photograph/resight an image from one season to the next, from one year to the next. In comparing shots of barns or landscapes, for example, one can consider the contrast in the sunlight, or how a building may have weathered, and as such, observe that temporal passing. In my photos, one may also see how my work has been influenced by painting, particularly with watercolors. I am attracted to vibrant color, although I attempt to remain faithful to the color inherent in nature.
In closing, I recall the words of the influential American sociologist and photographer, Lewis Hine:
“If I could tell the story in words, I wouldn’t need to lug around a camera.”
