I experience photography as a need to capture something that has evoked in me a sense of urgency by its sheer being, a feeling of elation, regardless of the specific content of the image. In this sense, series of photographs emerge out of captures, not initially intended as a whole, but which have, nevertheless, all provoked in me a sense of immediate connection and a deeply felt presence in “the moment” -a moment of nostalgia or hopefulness, of euphoria or sadness, of anxiousness, or disconcertedness, of aloneness. Different feelings are intertwined in a common journey, where light and dark meet in ways that suddenly transform the mundane and familiar into the magically unexpected, into the mysterious or fairylike, the eerie or otherworldly. Images occur out of an attempt to capture that particular transformation experienced through a deeply felt connectedness with the particular photographic moment. What happens during the photographic process is in that sense difficult to conceptualize, to label and to describe, after the fact. As such, titles and categorizations of my work are transitory and series of photographs are fluid, always subject to reconsideration and reassessment. They simply facilitate the presentation and communication of my work at a given point in time.
