Artist Statement -

My path to pinhole has been long. I had been photographing for 20 years, trying to make photos that embodied the beauty of the world. Sometimes I was successful, sometimes not, but I didn't feel fully engaged in my photography. I felt that I wanted to make meaningful photographs, so I began to really work at it. I shot hundreds of rolls of film and made thousands of digital exposures. I did what thousands of other photographers have done and made photographs like thousands of others .

But that's not what I wanted. So I came to pinhole.

Pinhole is my way to show the true condition of the natural world, unsteady and uncertain, illusory and ephemeral. Just as when we are immersed in a stream, we do not notice the individual drops of water - we feel "water". Over time, we do begin to notice distinct currents in the larger stream.

My pinhole photography is an attempt to communicate the entirety of my surroundings - not as separate parts, but as that flowing wholeness.
