I am a Documentary Photographer. It’s as simple as that. Or is it? I believe that through the lens of my camera, through my eyes, eternity exists. I have the ability to freeze time, to preserve moments indefinitely, to create history. It is my goal to create something for future generations to view, reflect, ponder and learn. Photography has in a sense created time travel. What an invention. Although if not applied properly, photography has the ability to create false truths. The statement “every picture tells a story” is true, but is the story true? As a photographer, it is my duty to document what I see, what is real. This is what I do. It has been almost 45 years since I picked up my first camera and am in awe of it now as I was then. Hardly a day has passed by that I haven't looked through a lens.
