Light seems to be a basis of my life’s activity: I loved flashlights, matches, camp fires, pin ball machines, magnifiers, lenses, binoculars, microscopes, lasers, and of course cameras. The photon is the fabric of my life’s magic carpet. The compulsion to find and frame images that visually stimulate or momentarily disrupt or settle my imagination has been with me as long as I can remember. I find myself constantly framing scenes. When that scene contains that extra ingredient –a “Visual Trigger”, I feel compelled to photographically capture that moment in time. I sense an internal rush that injects a sensory arousal that gives photography a unique place on my pleasure mantle.
