About my photography

I have had the opportunity to travel in search of magical images.


I have gone specifically to document the beauty of the locations – the sculptural, crystalline feel of ice, the quiet drama of the desert, the energy and isolation of the sea, the life of the land. While these images are not meant to to be didactic or political, I have captured slices of time that can never repeat and scenes that may never be approximated again. Light and weather change. Ice melts. Sand shifts. Tides rise and fall.


I invite you to make the journey and to find the beauty, the mood, and the context that works for you.
