IN LUCE VERITAS EST
My first experience with photography was toying with my father’s old film camera.
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 nearly 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 something from raw materials,
the photographer begins with what is already created.
I begin with the vastness of the universe.
Sprinkled sand and scattered stars;
Setting sun and morning glow;
Eyes gazing here,
The soft curls of hills,
Jagged mountain peaks,
And the shifts of light
that dance about 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.
