Artist Statement:
Following in a long tradition of fine-art photographers, I use the camera and the darkroom to make art work that interprets what I see around me.  This series creates abstract images from small vignettes within larger scenes.  My creative process starts with making an image, which is interpreted in the digital darkroom and then printed to create the work.
