WONDER & SURPRISE
Curiosity about the endlessly amazing world engages me daily. Appearances reveal truths and lies and in between the actual and the sublime. Traces of lives lead to discoveries and connections between different worlds and times. Ever new perspectives.
Photographing my environment for more than thirty years has helped me understand the unspoken flow and meaning of time. As I see it, life encompasses both matter and spirit which is experienced not just through vision, but with all one's senses, thoughts and feelings.
These images of transience, like life itself, capture and illuminate the multiple contradictions inherent in being. These ephemeral glimpses resonate with all people by picturing the unsayable, turning outward signs into introspective enlightenment. Visual memory and the unconscious draw analogies with the past and project imagination into the future, all grounded in the present instant.
