“There is something magical about the quality of natural light. I love to see how it has such influence and power over its subject. Often making the mundane beautiful; the dismissed present. This body of work reflects my travels outdoors, capturing my favorite subject: light.”

“As the night wears on, the glare from the concession stands creates a strong contrast to the enveloping darkness. People partially revealed or silhouetted against the lighted windows and shapes, shadows, and patterns of the concession stands contribute to the edginess of the images, making what in the daytime might be a festive event often seem somber and surreal.”
