My art has its basis in still photography and my interest in the illuminated image has led me to experiment with a variety of light sources, extending my exploration of light and shadow beyond the camera and the darkroom into three dimensional constructions and digital processes.
Shadows play a central role in my work. Shadows are illusory and yet, by their very presence, they indicate that something real is present. The same paradox has often been said of a photograph, which captures a moment in time and leads us to believe that we have seen something that actually exists.
