A study of seasons of the ballet. The grace of the ballerina is juxtaposed with the beauty of nature.
"I have always regarded my photography as â€œdistilled momentsâ€ because of photographyâ€™s permanent recording of many transient qualities. My experience is that when we remember a place, time or event, we do not remember the literal, we remember the best from that situation. Recall a favorite sunset; you do not recall the exact moment the sun hit the horizon. Rather, your mind combines the best clouds, the least wind, and the most flamboyant sky: the idealized sunset. My interpretation of a scene is similar; I focus on the best and distill a timeline into the moment. Idealizing the beauty around us is my attempt to represent the perfection of life around us. To witness such a moment is too rare and fleeting, and should preserved and shared, because beauty is love manifest. It is my goal to make people happy, and to share joy and beauty I encounter. To take people away from their everyday stress and strife, and show them not just an idealized vision, but a real look into the magic and the beauty of our world.â€
