IN LUCE EST VERITAS

My first experience with photography was taking my father’s Nikon film camera to college;

it was the same camera he used when he was a young man. As I explored the delicate interplay of light and the human face, I fell in love with this medium. Years later, my love of capturing diverse cultures and landscapes would compel me to travel to almost 40 countries. What you find here is a summation of those travels and what my eye felt inspired to share.

Along the way, I discovered that photography is a unique art form. That is, instead of fashioning a creation from raw materials, the photographer starts with what is already created -

it simply sheds light upon it.

 

Therefore, I begin with the vastness of the universe.

The scattered stars above me.

The vast stretches of sand below me.

The eyes of each person in a sea of people.

The wrinkles of the wise, the steady gaze of the young.

The soft curves of hills, and the dramatic shifts of light that dance upon them. 

And I must choose between all of these things.

I must choose what to cut out of the frame, in order to better shed light upon what is inside. 

 

It is precisely here that I find my vocation as an artist - In Luce Est Veritas, In light there is Truth
