My photography is influenced by the films of Kurosawa, by Walker Evans, Edward Weston and Wynn Bullock, and all of the 19 Century photographers whose work transformed the "mundane" into magic. I work to capture the mysteries inherent in all landscapes, the quirky undertones and enigmas, while leaving space for the viewer to interpret such things themselves. I have found that children often sense these inherent mysteries more quickly than adults, perhaps because they are less guarded, closer to nature, and still agreeable to the idea of magic.
As for content, I am drawn toward visions of historical relationships between indigenous peoples and European settlers as reflected in the lands where they lived and died, and where their presence still abides. Simple landscapes are steeped in symbolism, and raw sophistication. The ghosts of complex histories and uncertain futures still wander there.
