"My photographs are inspired by the feeling of being pleasantly alone with nature. My inspiration comes from the organic smell of moss in a cool forest, the feeling of misty wind whipping around me on a mountain, and the sound of seabirds on secluded beaches. These are the places where I feel whole and free to create. By using a fully mechanical camera and analog film as my medium I have made a body of work about being alone with the world and the satisfying solitude that comes with it. When viewing my work one should feel mindful of the world on which we live."
