Freedom is...when I am myself!
– Harry Callahan
Photography has been a life giving adventure for me since I was a child. Photography has been my inspiration, one of my vehicles for self-expression, my peace, my refuge, my passion, my living and my way. As long as I’ve been involved in photography, I have consistently found within it new challenges, more to learn, a sense of peace and a reason to go out and further explore my world and the people in it. A reason to keep challenging myself.
My passion has always been people and the stories they tell, and I have used photography as a way to know more about you and about myself. There have been times when I’ve stopped photographing completely. And though I took no photographs during those times, this also taught me more about who I am. Without the camera I get stuck, or perhaps it is that I get stuck and then stop photographing. With the camera I am challenged to see differently and when I am willing to look for it, I see so very many things from which I can learn, become more and move forward. Some of the things I see, I absolutely love, while others are more difficult for me to swallow. Either way, when I’m willing to stop and look, I inevitably learn something more.
I need my camera and I love the stories it reveals for me. At times what I see in my photography scares me, other times it thrills me, again it moves me and ultimately, when I am ready to see it, it changes me. I have always found it magical to grab an instant in time.
Life, for me, is like a running movie and we anticipate what’s coming next. But I have found that when I capture but a moment of it and then look back at what I captured, suddenly the story can be interpreted in so many different ways. I can rewrite the script completely…and I find that really fun!!
It excites me to see, through the photographs I take, how many different variations of any given movie I can come up with. I have always loved telling stories and I get excited when others tell their stories, whether it be directly or through the photographs I take. My camera is like my GPS and has become for me a way to navigate the world and to reach into my soul, and I love it!
