"The story gives meaning to what would otherwise be an unbearable sequence of sheer happenings."  – Isaak Dinesen.                               My photography is about trying to capture the story of a moment on film. It's about seeking understanding through observing. It's bearing witness to the suffering of others or honoring the simple joys of their daily lives. It's shooting with vintage equipment and available light, and staying open to the beautiful ways the universe will arrange itself if we just pay attention. And while it's true that an image only shows one piece of a much larger story, the simplest ideas often carry the most weight.
