IN LUCE VERITAS EST
In Light There is Truth
My first experience with photography was toying around with my father’s old film camera.
As I explored the delicate interplay of light and the human subject,
I fell in love with this medium.
Years later, my love of capturing diverse cultures and landscapes would compel me to travel to over 45 countries. What you find here is a summation of those travels and what my eye felt compelled to share.
Along the way,
I discovered that photography
is a unique form of art.
That is, instead of the artist
creating something from nothing,
the photographer begins
with what is already created.
I begin with the vastness of the universe:
Scattered stars above me
and glowing horizons before me.
Piercing mountain peaks above me
and rushing rivers below me.
Perfect profiles and graceful figures,
wistful wrinkles and youthful gazes,
And I must choose.
I must choose what to cut out of the frame
in order to better shed light
upon what is inside.
And God said,
" Let there be light"
The body of work you see on this site has been accumlated over the past 12 years of my life as I traveled the world during my spare time and brought my camera along the way. I am now happily married and live in Virginia with my husband and one year old daughter.
I have every intention to keep traveling the world.
