Artist's statement

Full Artist's statement

I never wanted to shoot a picture of The Capitol again...you know, fighting that feeling that every song has already been written...and every picture already taken.

But in 2006, eons ago in the history of digital imaging, I became fascinated with the power of emerging digital photographic processes to reveal relationships that create a broader sense of place. By shooting, blending, and digitally stitching multiple exposures of a scene together into a seamless composition, a passage of time and space is suspended within the confines of the still image drawing me deeper into the scene at hand.

Based in the DC area for over 20 years and working primarily as an editorial and corporate communications marketing photographer, I had gotten over shooting the monuments long ago...but with new techniques entrancing me deeper and deeper I am seeing the city, and other places in my travels, with new eyes.
