Statement
 
Places and Faces:

I believe photographs are most interesting when they foster a sense of mystery, showing not just beauty, but also peaking the curiosity as to how and where it was taken. Beautiful photographs are to be found everywhere, however, it takes not only vision but also patience and perseverance to find them.

My work is about being in touch with my environment. My vision is also driven by my love of technology and the exploration of new places. My interests are to capture the beauty of our everyday surroundings, in addition to portraiture. Places and faces interest me equally.

I use slow shutter speeds and double exposures to explore the nuances of movement and the passage of time. I work with landscapes, seascapes urbanscapes and people, to illustrate my perspective. My goal is to use my camera to open unexplored worlds, to satisfy human curiosity and show everyday beauty.

I take great care and pride in presenting my work. Each image is printed on archival paper and is color corrected by hand. I use archival paper because it makes the photograph less vulnerable to degradation over the years. My photographs are available directly from my website: http://www.island-foto.com
