About the Book
A large part of my creative endeavor as a photographer has been to observe and reveal the within of things, to make photographs that increase my appreciation of the patterns in the evolutionary process that draw me into the contemplation of being.
The images selected for this book are among those in my body of work that point to a deep underlying order beneath the apparent chaos of surface appearances. The intent in making such images is neither decoration nor technical or pictorial beauty. Rather, they are vehicles to direct and focus attention to universal order.
