"To me, photography is an art of observation.
It's about finding something interesting in an
ordinary place . . . I've found it has little to do
with the things you see and everything to do
with the way you see them — Elliott Erwitt
Feelings of excitement, suspense and sometimes fleeting moments
of fear of the unknown, come over me when I photograph at night.
There is something magically seductive and alluring. Night
photography has a compelling drama all its own, where light
moves in all directions creating shadows, fantasies and fascination
in a dreamlike world reminiscent of a theater stage. Here, I am
not interested in the literal interpretation, but seek to reveal
the deeper mysteries found within.
My interest in night photography happened early on and remains
my primary focus where I often travel abroad to remote places.
Working alone and uninterrupted is an integral part of my
creative process. Being a traditional black and white film
photographer, I find inspiration and satisfaction creating
images in my own darkroom. It is a slow and deliberate process
that fulfills my need for the "hands-on" experience.
