Why I Take Photos

My photography is a practice. Like yoga, you never “get there” so much as hope to keep growing.

It’s a way of seeing, obviously, but for me it’s also making a short poem out of what I see. The poems might be funny, or wistful, or arousing — they offer a moment of delight, and if I do it right, they hint at the beautiful transience of human life.

I’m showing you this, I made this for you.
