Ah, mon cher, for anyone who is alone, without God and without a master, the weight of days is dreadful.
Albert Camus, The Fall
I spent a wonderful childhood exploring the Great Lakes, forests and rivers of Michigan with my beloved parents and 5 brothers and sisters, sleeping under the stars watching the Northern Lights, looking for deer at night, chasing snakes in the woods, building sand castles and swimming. Later, I studied the Greeks, Transcendentalism, the World’s Great Religions and the Philosophy of Science. These experiences instilled in me a profound love of and respect for Nature and the human Soul.
While the material world may be indestructible, it certainly is not immutable. I am fascinated by cloud patterns, waves breaking on the shore, sand structures on the beach left by the tides, and plants, flowers, bushes and trees of all varieties. On partly cloudy days, especially, the sun sneaks through the clouds, its rays illuminating the world in varying strengths from minute to minute as the clouds roll by. The world thus changes before our very eyes! My fascination with these things is revealed in my photographs, where I capture a nanosecond long “event” of nature in visible light, then use it to create devolving impressionistic and abstract images using filters. My objective is to inspire others and reveal Nature in all its splendor and glory.
