When Two and Two Equals Five
I am dedicated as an artist to recognizing and recording those fleeting yet memorable glimpses of life that we take for granted, moments every family has but rarely sees revealed in photographs.
I call them Moments of Grace®, when two and two equals five; when truth, spirit, love and even humor come together to create a whole that is infinitely greater than the sum of its parts.
We all have within ourselves a particular truth, a spirit and energy that makes us who we are. This authentic identity does not step forward on demand; it does not pose, and the minute I ask it to do so, I turn a picture into a statement about me rather than about you.
Indeed, my art has much less to do with taking pictures than with helping my subjects express their own truths. This never happens the same way twice. I need to be alert and awake to the energy of my subjects. I could never describe these attributes in words, but I know how to let my camera find and record them.
