I began taking photographs to document the wanderlust of my twenties. Then it became an adjunct to my career as a journalist. After a long hiatus and several other careers, I picked up the camera again. As a journalist, my words took center stage and my images were supporting actors. This time around I have reversed my priorities. Now my images have the leading role in visual stories of unexpected juxtapositions and ephemeral and artful moments.
Sometimes a story will present itself; other times I take an active role in its creation. When my analytical inner “science geek” and my “artist eye” interpret the same scene through different lenses, I know there is a new visual story waiting to be explored.
