Artist’s statement:

To capture a moment forever, to always be able to remember it and savor it, that is a gift.

To try to uncover the heart of the moment, the feeling of the experience through one fraction of a second of exposure, that is the challenge.

To be able to share those moments, some common, some exotic, with friends, family, and strangers, that is the pleasure.

To me, this is the essence of photography.
