I make documentary photographs that are both concrete and abstract. In my photographs there is a dialogue between the natural color of the living landscape and the man-made color of structures as they have been modified by conditions and time. My photographs are an aesthetic and topographic archaeology of a site; they are simultaneously a celebration of light gracing form, and a way of seeing which reveals the extraordinary in the ordinary. Photographic accuracy of light and color renders the subtle place where the fortuitous occurs and the marvelous emerges. The photograph captures the chemistry of an instant that both defines, and is redefined by the printed image.
