~ VISIONS UNVEILED ~     

Imagine a world absent of information, a world void of pictures, a world where communication is restricted only to speech and the written word. Imagine this and indeed the miracle of photography becomes overwhelmingly apparent. In a fraction of a second captured, interpreted and preserved for the enjoyment of others. This is the moment where art embraces the soul. To tap into this inner truth, to stir the imagination, to reflect upon honest emotions and to construct this provocative psyche on a timeless photographic print is what this process is all about. The pure fascination of this process drives and inspires me. The amazing world of photography is simple, yet complex; beautiful yet imperfect; universal yet individual; momentary yet ageless.
