ARTIST'S STATEMENT

I am a documentary photographer from a small town in Alabama. My marriage to a full time working musician and my love of life, adventure and outdoors is often depicted with my personal works. Photography has been a huge part of my life for well over 25 years now, so I consider it more about a visual journey than a professional destination. The vast majority of my work is in black and white as I connect it more to a nostalgic and timeless look over my color images. This probably has a lot to do with how I learned how to shoot with black and white film printed and developed in a dark room. So I credit my style from my earlier, formative years as a student of photography. My work is predominantly unplanned, spontaneous and observant. I never want to control or direct individuals with my documentary work as this takes away the individual's authentic moment and identity.
