About Me

Please visit my brand-new website!

I love the kind of beauty that feels genuine, that emanates from the depths of a person, that draws from truth rather than artifice; beauty not given over entirely to eroticism but retaining some measure of innocence; beauty that does not seek to titillate but to inspire; beauty that seeks not remuneration or adoration for itself but is generous; beauty that transcends itself and carries the aroma of sublime realms. Know what I mean?

"If an objet d’art is a created artifact and an objet trouvé is an object found in the world, there ought to be a name for an object that is both made and found at the same moment—an object transfigured rather than manipulated, presented rather than represented, inscribed rather than described.  To see a naturalistic object in a new light, under this transformed aspect, is the great gift within the power of a fine photographer."
Mike Weaver, "Alvin Langdon Coburn, Symbolist Photographer" (Aperture, 1986)
