Artist Statement Submitted 2017Quiet Spaces Portfolio
Quiet spaces have meaning for each of us. To me, each provides a sense of balance, strength and peace. At various times when I photograph I subconsciously gravitate toward quiet spaces for calm, tranquility, and stillness. In this abbreviated portfolio, assembled over several recent years of shooting, I illustrate these concepts. Whether the photograph is “straight” with no additional components, or digitally enhanced with two of my favorites motifs (one particular butterfly or a self-portrait with mask), the essence of who I am, is exposed. For me, it is a peaceful, personal portfolio.
