Hope and Beauty
that I have to say about photography, and why I do it, is on the
wall. The images say everything. Yet, I know that it is sometimes
difficult to find meaning without a frame of reference andI do not
intend to force my sentiments about my work upon the viewer, but
rather relate an understanding of where it is I am coming from and
where I may be going.]
my work is an attempt to find that which survives, that which has
resisted the ravages of time and neglect. The images are not an
attempt to revive what is gone, but rather to testify to what-has-been.
These subjects stand as a testament to the past, and yet they situate
us within the present and hint at where we may be in the future.
these subjects, despair and alienation pulled through, hand-in-hand,
with beauty. They exist together within the subject and I have no
intention of seperating one emotion from the other. But at the unification
of anguish and splendor lies the candlelight glow of hope, and it
is from this hope which the light of all beauty radiates.
