I travel with a large camera, my excuse to encounter other travelers, artists, local passersby, and patrons. The resulting portraits are evidence of the intervals of stillness, the subtle negotiations, and the mutual understanding of the power of photographs. The photographic event is full of potential, each fraction of a second slightly different from the next. Mysteriously revealing so little while describing so much, portraiture offers me an enigmatic method of exploring the world, its residents, and the spaces between us.
