There are moments within everyday settings when distractions fade. Scenes with breathing room appear, accentuating connections in and with nature. Our surroundings reach out to us, reviving and reassuring us through their beauty and example.

My photographic process is to come across these scenes spontaneously. This results in a body of work more representative of a person’s typical day-to-day experience. Highlighting a few elements at a time seeks to draw out the poetic within the everyday. I use negative space to communicate an encompassing vastness that offers connection, peaceful solitude, or both.
