Nature reclaims and reassembles abandoned architecture and discarded objects. Through the passage of time and exposure to the elements, these objects are transformed into creations of beautiful colors, patterns, and textures. The reclaimed object may be an abstraction or a visual statement documenting the power of nature to possess and prevail over man-made things. Eventually, these ruins vanish from our landscape. I am fascinated and inspired by the art created by nature and I use photography to capture the unexpected beauty that emerges during this process.
As a photographer, I am drawn to nature and architecture as my subjects. I enjoy photographing rural and urban landscapes as well as the everyday objects that we see so frequently that we may no longer notice their unique qualities. It is my passion to capture the spirit and essence of these subjects to engage the interest and imagination of the viewer.
The last six B&W photographs were shot in the 1990s using Kodak High Speed Infrared Film.
