There's a story behind every image and that's what "Why?" is all about. Giving each image a voice with the back story directly from the artist extends the journey as you look at a photograph.

My images are a journey into the personal space of my subject. I believe that photography is not just a record of a physical presence but a documentation of the encounter between me and the energy of my subject. I want my viewers to see my photographs as an opportunity to consider the larger, unseen realities that contribute to the energy and uniqueness of my subjects. In formal terms, my work is an exploration of a packed frame typically filled with layers in the form of light, texture and color. I am interested in both the tension and solitude that exists between the perceived space of the frame.
