In essence, my work is about seeing the world as it is – discovering reality purely by synchronizing the mind, eye and heart. Perceptions are no longer clouded by judgement, but seem to appear 'out of the blue'.

I use a hand-held digital camera and take a simple exposure using only natural light. The images are not altered through computer manipulation. In this way, the pictures speak for themselves. Each photograph is presented as closely as possible to its natural form – as I experienced in that fleeting moment.

I spend much of my time looking and seeing. The exact perception cannot be recaptured. Through my photographs, I hope to be able to share the sense of wonder, curiosity, joy and magic that I experience along the way.
