The people and the landscapes I photograph whisper to me metaphorically … “Hey you … Take my picture … over here … there’s a photograph here, you just have to find it”.

That is, often, the challenge. After catching my attention and calling me over, the subject of the picture then hides. It is then up to me to rediscover the image and refine it.

My recent works are digitally combinations of my photographs – a montage. From several photos that have in common a theme or geography a new image appears – a new world, perhaps – over the weeks and sometimes months it takes to create these images.

It is a refining process that I have personally found very rewarding, especially the exploration of pixels, the basic building blocks of a digital image. Pixels and their organization are what creates most modern photographs, and I find them fascinating.
