A software engineer by day, aspiring fine art photographer by night (well, not just at night). The biggest influences on my photography include the works of Michael Kenna, Ansel Adams, Cole Thompson and Hiroshi Sugimoto. I'm especially interested in black and white imagery. I really love how monochrome images have a way of stripping out the superfluous. Long exposure photography is also a favourite of mine. I really like how it it smooths out the hard edges in a scene and leaves you with just the essentials.
I think Michael Kenna said it best with:
"Perhaps most intriguing of all is that it is possible to photograph what is impossible for the human eye to see - cumulative time."
