  “Idon’t take pictures; I make photographs.
My photographs not only act as my vision, but as my voice. Where I’m Reaching From is a series about the cusp of decay and the passage of time. To me, light and shadow have a way of literally, and figuratively, illu- minating our conception of time and space. I capture the subtle moments containing the exchange of those elements through several alternative processes. I investigate the perception of age by dealing with the delica- cies of decay, specifically in botanical matter, with the emergence and disappearance of shadows. The visible
chemistry of elements evokes a clarity
on the inescapability of decay and that
the passage of time always marches
forward. However, in the midst of de-
terioration, there is an acute beauty to
be appreciated. I aim to magnify and
cause pause at that moment.”
