The purpose of my photography is to evoke within
the observer an immediate sense of "being", of everything
being sensuous and a part of the human experience. Satisfying images
should feel visually and emotionally in balance. I seek the same
effect as haiku, the poetry of sensation--a sense of each moment
or thing having significance, regardless of subject matter. An
image should be perceived directly for what it is without the
need for thought or intellectualizing. It should resonate and
quiet the mind. Emptiness, real or inferred, evokes a sense of
timelessness. I try to use it as the primary element in composition.
I believe in what Lao Tzu said:
"Give people a void to look at and simplicity
Then there will be little selfishness and few desires."
