To make a photograph is to care, to hold something up as being valued.
Film photography and darkroom work is important to me because it is a slow process, fraught with contingency. Objects are experienced vicariously through the photographic rendering of light. Film does this in a particular way that is hard to match through the digital process. This is not a diatribe against digital techniques; I have a high regard for the digital process, often using it myself. It just doesn’t always give me everything that I need.
I rarely do projects, as such (although over time I display my photographs in collections). For me, each photograph is its own moment, sufficient to itself.
My style of photography is in the ‘lyrical documentary’ tradition.
