Artist Statement

Most of my photographs deal with the travel experience and my response to place. It’s history, culture, politics, art and design. I think for the artist, there is often, no preferred subject matter. Everything is a possible subject. I like the Lisette Model quote: “You are the subject, life is the object.”
