The decisive moment, captured by luck and by art, is the heart of my photo work.  Debts to Cartier-Bresson, Robert Frank, W. Eugene Smith, Helen Levitt and others are very clear.  To see again such perfect instants as those masters had found, to hold and to celebrate those singular places in the endless stream of life, are my constant challenges.

A scrutiny of nature’s landscapes, drawing the figure to learn what we truly are, in likeness and structure -- and a weaving of that knowledge into a telling of our very own stories -- those are my quests.
