The Artist

Why do you create? I am a passionate photographer for many years, with a pronounced preference for black & white. The strength of black & white photography to me is that it allows the “story” of the image to shine through without the visual distraction of other colors.
How do you work? My work is characterized by composition and a sense of drama. I look for the different in the ordinary by using the power of the still image to tell a story or capture a mood or moment in time.
Do you consider yourself a full-time or part-time artist? Still part-time. Getting bussier every day however.
Besides creating, where else do you spend your time? Spending time with my family. Listening music, playing guitar, reading.
What inspires you? Nature, people, mood, contrasts
What does the term art mean to you? I think photography can be fine art if it has an aesthetic appeal, informs us and triggers an experience.
Name three artists that you respect? Daidi Moriyama, Miron Zownir and Eamonn Doyle
What is your favourite piece of artwork? "Au Bord de la Marne" by Henry Cartier-Bresson
