BEHIND THE LENS
Photography for me is about light and seeing. It is a process of making choices at every step. What is my relationship to the subject and what do I want to reveal about it? How does the light interact with it and do I want to influence that? Do I want to stop time or show it passing and what do I want to show or hide with depth of field?
Photography is both personal and universal. Only I can make a particular image and that image will elicit a unique response from each viewer.
