This marks my entry into the public domain, revealing my private photographic journeys. The sights that captivate me, whether by the light, face, gesture, posture, setting, etc. are visualized first through my eyes and then made permanent via my camera's lens. My wanderings which produce these visual records of my daily life lead inevitably to thoughts. The ideas triggered by these sights become mini- photo essays on philosophical subjects which help me investigate the nature of existence.

Reflections of Reality

Is seeing forms in shadows merely illusions? What is reality and true existence?

   Are shadows things in themselves or always reflections of unseen things as in Plato's allegorical cave?

    Seeing is not always believing but a tool for creative imagination of an inner truth.
