I am a person with a big heart and a deep need to be connected. Connection and compassion have manifested themselves both in my work in photography and as a psychotherapist, my current occupation.
My entry into the path that led me both to psychotherapy and to the photography I do now began with a near-fatal medical incident in Albany, New York, in 1993. That event, which included a near-death experience, divided my life into two parts: who I was, and who I am becoming. The way back from the brink has been, to paraphrase The Dead's Jerry Garcia, "a long, strange trip." On it, I have discovered what I was put on the planet to do; my calling.
Making images feels like I am in wordless conversation with natural elements far more profound than anything I could create myself. Seascapes, skyscapes, and landscapes evoke a sense of connection with vastness and an appropriate resizing of worries and concerns, much like the perspective one gets from Chinese landscape scrolls, where the people are tiny figures on an apparently infinite terrain. My work with flowers and trees connects me deeply with their minute particulars, the building blocks from which all creation generates. There is something prayer-like about both shooting and post-processing. They are acts of devotion. When the process is at its best, I feel I'm no more the creator of these images than someone who tunes the FM dial is the creator of whatever comes through the speakers. Read Less
