I am a voyeur. Others seem unaware of the things I see so, it isn't any wonder that photography is my passion. With a camera, one can capture moments that will never be again, slivers of the universe, full of light, color and humanity.
My first 35mm camera was a gift from my mother and father. As a sophomore in high school I left behind my beloved tennis racket to pursue journalism. In the school darkroom, I spent hours and hours developing black and white prints of athletes suited up on courts, tracks and sidelines. Image after image eased into being in those cool, liquid baths, gifting me with memories and time suspended.
After graduation I put the camera on the highest shelf in the closet and ran off to college and new experiences. Like most people, I walked the miles with blinders on for many years, caught up in working, bill paying and lamenting on long lost dreams. I can’t say I have ever worked at anything I truly, passionately love but I have always truly and passionately loved photographing the world as I see it. With the rise of digital photography came a renewed interest and a way of seeing and being wide awake in the world.
I am once again the voyeur....
