“Photography can be more than an image on a piece of film or data in a computer; it can be an expression of ourselves, our memories and of the world around us!”

Photography can be a channel of expression in ways that exceed the visual senses. As with other mediums of art it can excite our sense of smell with the bright pedals of a flower or invite or sense of touch with a soft curve, a sharp corner or a rough texture. Photography can explode in the memory of our mouths the crisp tang of a hot chili pepper. It can compose in our minds a melody of dancing shadows and light.
Photography also records precious moments in time. Moments otherwise lost forever except for in our own memories. However even memories can fade and the details may become hazy or lost. Photographic images created at that moment in time can be reconstructed and restored to it’s former beauty. This is what I love to do; To create new memories and to try to restore those faded by time.
