Like most photographers, I strive to make compelling and memorable images. The opportunity to experiment with new ways to help my images to connect more deeply with the viewer is the driving force behind my work.
I've found that my travel and street photography images speak to me much more clearly with the removal of color. Black and White images offer a clarity of message that can be lost in the visual distractions of color.
Edward Weston was quoted as saying, "My own eyes are no more than scouts on a preliminary search, for the camera's eye may entirely change my idea." I am surprised at how often this has turned out to be true.
