When I first took up a camera, I was drawn to the sheer delight to be found in color, and in simple somewhat graphical compositions. This style of work was my first love and despite my excursions into other styles, still a source of deep satisfaction.
My camera has been a force in my life for slowing down and looking, really looking, at my surroundings. It is a force for mindfulness. Each of these images represents an occasion of being completely in the moment, absorbed by the color, texture, and pattern of the scene before my eyes. The images span the years from 2009 to 2016, representing the period of time prior to my love affair with alternative photographic processes. They were all captured with a digital camera.
