Meetings & Collisions


At the most basic, fundamental level, photography is about collision.

Light hitting an object, bouncing, and being gathered.

I like the intersection of planes, the crossing of lines; the meeting places between people, between objects, or just between constantly shifting, fading shadows.

Sometimes the connections are temporary, fleeting, and pass in an instant; other times they leave a mark - and occasionally, the accumulation of thousands of these interactions will wear one side down.

Surfaces. Textures. Light, shade.

That's all we have.
