“A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed.” Ansel Adams
The art I produce today is the convergence of my experiences from living on Long Island most of my life. I have a strong desire to document and share the beauty that I have witnessed through my photography. I am interested in capturing a time and memory by documenting objects and landscapes that are silently disappearing into their surroundings.
My photographs often interpret rather than describe and include my emotional connection to the landscape. The scenes I capture can be abstract and vivid. When working in color, they are often lush and provocative. My work is often described using words that would be usually associated with paintings. For these reasons, I consider myself a camera-artist or conceptual-photographer that places photography on a level with painting, drawing, poetry and music. By using what I call intuitive vision, I translate my personal feelings into the language of photography.
“Every man’s work, …is always a portrait of himself.”
