Artist Statement

Light Knows Not Time or Space. By objectifying it and embodying it, I become a sort of mirror which give it reference and leads to awareness or self-actualization. 

When photographing a structure, I not only think about its design and the site in front of me, but the intention of the creator to uplift those who experience it. I focus on the materials and the forces it took to construct it. I strive to capture the energy expelled by the hard work throughout this monumental task of transforming raw materials into a finished object. These great feats provide a source of inspiration that opens me up to creativity, which then multiplies.

I simply want to share my appreciation with the viewer to inspire them. I want you to imagine yourself there, feeling as I did when making the photograph, that sense of connection to a vast source of unlimited energy.
