Statement:
I love irony... not exclusively, but I have a special appreciation for it. And it underlies a lot of my work. I must have gotten it from my mother as she would laugh at news stories like, Santa looses fingers while stepping off helicopter to wave at kids. And my dad, being a doctor, surgeon, and corner, would bring humor to the dinner table on things like bowel obstructions and suicides. Both my parents were great at extracting humor out of tragedy and that has given me a way of seeing life. For me creating images is only an arms length away. Its all about my daily life, those meaningful picutres Im able to extract from it, and the personal photographic vision I bring to those pictures.
