Minneapolis, MN, USA
I am a Twin Cities native whose interest in photography stems, in part, from having a grandfather/mentor who, as a photographer himself, was the self-designated documentarian of our family. He was both the participant and the observer, and as my hero, he helped shape my view of the world. I, too, am this participant/observer who seeks to impart information through my images that reflect this point of view.
I feel that my photographs are successful if the viewer finds the image outwardly interesting, while at the same time relates internally to what is being presented. I believe that clean, simple techniques often convey a complexity to a subject that is often missed when excess staging and techniques are introduced. The most important moments are frequently found in what I like to call, "what comes in-between." That side-glance, shrug, or nervous laugh that the subject didn't plan. If I can capture these moments then I have achieved my goal of showing what is true about a person, a scene, or a story.
