Photography for me is an art of exclusion, a way to create an image by reducing distractions in order to find an essence that resounds with something in me. The act of “inspection” of the subject becomes a form of “introspection” and meditation. When I shoot, I really have to look and have to be in that moment. Distractions need to be eliminated not only from the image but my thoughts. There is a deeper bond made between me and the world I live in. When I next visit these places or see these objects, that connection is always felt. My job as an artist is done if my photos make the viewer take pause to reflect on how the seemingly ordinary things surrounding us or to reflect on catching a moment.
