My quiet, minimalist work explores the subtle shapes and shadings of the natural world. I prefer to photograph in solitude, under soft light, immersed in nature, suspended in time. My photographs chronicle my sensations and observations. Hiroshi Sugimoto, Claude Monet, Mark Rothko and James Turrell have been important influences on my photography.

'Atmographs' are impressions of fleeting atmospheric light, distilling air and light down to a single element: color. I fragment and reconfigure the horizon into isolated frames, grids, and segmented panoramas, transforming the sky into ethereal color fields.
