It's difficult for me to describe why I take the pictures I take (to quote Lewis Hine, "If I could say it in words, I wouldn't need to photograph!") The best explanation I can offer is that I use my photography to see the world from a different angle. As a full-time RVer, I travel year-round -- living and working in a different community every few weeks. I have the great fortune of being able to experience America from a somewhat unusual perspective. I'm not a local, nor am I a tourist -- I'm more like an anthropologist who goes "native" over and over again, with every new culture that she studies! I observe and record and interpret as I go, but I very rarely stay on the sidelines. When I become a part of a place, that place also becomes a part of me, a part of my art -- and I walk away with a broader understanding of the world around me and deeper respect for my fellow homo sapiens. My photography is very personal and very subjective -- I try to offer folks the opportunity to travel with me, sharing the people and places and adventures that have changed my life. If it catches my eye, I hope it will touch your soul!
