I began to photograph seriously in 2001 when the color, space, and drama of the San Luis Valley, CO, took hold of me. Over time I've come to see photography as a form of interruption and act of appreciation. As we travel, walk or look at the landscape, without preconceived ideas of subject matter, something strikes us. It's a moment of interruption when our mind clears through the power of our senses. To look from this place seems to go beyond the descriptive, e.g., "this is a pretty landscape or those mountains are lit beautifully". Rather the parts and pieces of what you see work together and separately and there's a sense of awe at how it all comes together.
I hope my photographs also provide a moment of respite and appreciation for viewers.
