Artist Statement 

Born and raised in southern New Jersey on the edge of the Pine Barrens, I find this region brimming with evocative imagery. It served as the inspiration for this series of photographs. With all my work I hope to secure one moment in time; a moment perhaps never again to be experienced. Inspired by a variety of subjects and themes, my favorite photographs are the ones which evoke provocative feelings and sensations within the observer. I am most satisfied when the viewer feels invited, perhaps even compelled to use their imagination to enhance the story triggered by the image. I think of my photos as providing the title of a story, the details of which are waiting to be filled in by the viewer’s imagination. Where the story goes is up to you; I only hope that you enjoy it!
