About Photographer

Although not everyone can climb the peaks of the Himalayas or Yosemite, we can all appreciate the beauty and complexity of the natural world around us—in a lone flower emerging from cracks in the pavement, tree branches that mimic a human embrace, or the inner workings of a piece of fruit. I am mesmerized by both the simplicity and the complexity of the natural world. It creates beautiful images behind which lay many layers of meaning. And, the closer one looks, the more one sees. Although I work with digital technology today, I rarely change an image from its original. My aspiration is "mindful viewing requires no alteration."
