Sunset Series (2013)
My photography tends to capture the ramifications of significant events while ignoring the event itself. Much more moving are the nuances that present themselves as a result of these origins. In an effort to pay respect to the setting of the sun, while making no effort to actually see it happen, I captured a picture every day at the time of this setting down, no matter where I was. In this way, I was fully aware that a very soul-stirring event was taking place and honoring my aesthetic leanings, simultaneously. Some of these 53 images were taken in places where the influence of the golden-hour light is obvious. Others were taken inside of a movie theater, pub, subway, gymnasium. None of them are of the actual sunset.
35-Day Dream (2011)
These photographs documented the essential adventures of two public school teachers set loose to roam the Southwest: eight states wide and thirty-five days long. Finding ourselves delicately balanced between urban and rural landscapes, we captured two perspectives of the same experience. This is a sample of what we loved, explored that summer in the form of textures, colors, subtleties. On an open road, the state of dreamland awakens.
