ARTIST STATEMENT

When I first discovered photography I came across an image that was made in 1916 by Paul Strand. The photograph is of a woman leaning against a drab stone wall, a black knitted scarf is pulled tightly around her head holding in all but a few wisps of her graying hair, her eyes are cast off in a directionless manner and around her neck hangs a large white sign with black letters that read ‘blind’.


Years later after my own eyes have viewed and photographed a myriad of pictures, it is Paul Strand’s ‘Blind Woman’ that remains with me. Not just because it is a stunning photograph but because I am struck by what a privilege sight is. I am saddened by my own and sometimes the worlds inability to truly see, so it is with the camera that I stretch my limited vision and force myself to not just look but to see.


From my extensive travels I hope that some of the photographs that I have had the good fortune to make somehow honor sight and the beauty of humanity that the camera allows us to capture.
