As an artist my mission is to create images using a straight- forward approach.
A spontaneous reaction to what I see without manipulation. I want my work to
express my reactions and interpretations of the subjects that are built up from within.
As a result the viewer is presented with the reality of the image developing a sense of place.
One of my goals is to continue creating documentaries and telling stories
that include historical information about the people and places I document.
An important part of the projects is sharing the images and the information
collected with the public. This is done through photo exhibitions,video, public
television, and in archival collections at various locations.
