My photography arises out of a deep reverence for nature. Iím continually moved by simple things: the texture of bark or moss, shadows and light, moving water and still reflections, decaying forms and the deep patterns that reoccur throughout nature.
When I go out to photograph I donít go looking for anything in particular. I learned early on that if I did, I would miss everything else that might be there. For me, itís more about allowingóallowing nature to reveal herself to me, and allowing my attention to be captured by the unexpected.
While the medium of photography is about preserving a moment in time, the process of photographing is a constant reminder of the utterly unrepeatable, ever-changing uniqueness of each moment. One can never go back to the same place and find the same thing.
Photography is a kind of spiritual practice, encouraging me to just be in the moment, rather than greedily looking for the next great image. It helps me get out of my head, into my body, and connect with what is around me. Ultimately, I strive not so much to record what I see, as to reveal what is beneath the surface: the deep inter-relatedness of all things.
