My photography revolves around specific concerns and issues: the fragility of life; the passage of time; the mystery underlying existence; and an overall sense of cherishing the precious. Drawn to the spiritual and mysterious quality of light, I attempt to visually articulate the contrast between light and shadow, soft and sharp. Working primarily with black-and-white infrared film helps me to emphasize not only feelings about past memories but also an appreciation for the fleeting nature of the moment. This film is sensitive to both the visible spectrum and infrared light, the latter of which is not perceived by the human eye.
