I studied visual arts and languages. I later worked as a translator and lived many years abroad, first in Europe and later in Asia. I started digital photography while in the latter, and recently have begun to work in film and different formats and processes.
I approach art as an exploration – of the physical world, of ways of seeing, of human emotion and intention. It is also an alternate way to experience the world, an essential complement to rational thought. By looking intently I can appreciate relationships among people, shapes, tones, space, perspective, etc. These elements underlie and evoke emotion, especially when combined effectively at the right moment. This is what I aim for in my photographs - to communicate a broad range of feelings beyond words or analysis.
