His work reveals a whole new word hidden right in front of us. It is as if there is a whole archetypal world of elemental beings supporting our own world. His sublelime images capture the hidden world of nature.

"Light tricks us in gances
Of particles and waves,
In images and likenesses
upon the waters we are made."
