Drawn to the influence of light on color, texture and shape, my images are intended to evoke introspection. My work is presented in both color and B&W infrared formats. I have enjoyed color photography for over 30 years. But more recently, I have become strongly committed to the intriguing qualities of infrared photography and the unique images that result.
These images of nature are about metaphors for life. They suggest human conditions… they are about calm, beauty, frustration, esteem, love, isolation and impending issues. Infrared photographs challenge our usual visual perceptions and offer a vision of beauty in unusual settings. This helps set a context for the emotions that these images portray.
My photographs renew a brief emotional reaction from the only moment the light and subject were creating my personal experience. Photography provides technical challenges each time I try to preserve that fleeting inspiration. As I open the shutter, I know that what I see then will never be seen the same again.
I was born in Connecticut and, after college, travelled throughout the United States. Now living in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York, I find new subjects near and far. Please also visit my website at: www.LightEffectPhoto.com.
