En Route

We are all en route ……

From the beginning to the end ……

The photographs are about the journey. They are about people like myself, who are in between places….in-transit…..en-route.  In this environment, there is a special kind of introspective communication, where each person is an individual universe navigating amongst a galaxy of others.

As I pass through life, I use the camera to remember the moments I’ve seen that had some special significance to me. Sometimes the serendipity of life presents you with something special for your eyes to see. The photographs verify to me that ….yes, I was there…. yes, I did see that…. I am fascinated by the still image, and the unique relationship it has to the continuous flow of life and time. The remarkable way it transforms the reality of a moment into a virtual memory that can be held in your hands and shared with others. The details of a moment are lost in time, until the tangible information of a photograph can remain as its only evidence.

I look at the simultaneous realities that coexist within my line of sight, the intersection of light and time, people and the world around them. Life itself is the canvas…. I am just a framer of its singular moments. [Official Website]
