Though my photographs mostly embody my deep affinity for the natural world, I’m also drawn to the enigmatic, odd, quirky, and surreal in our human nature. These images frame that curiosity.
Pico Iyer, in his essay, Why We Travel, writes: “We travel to open our heart and eyes…. to shake up our complacencies…” Indeed, travel has always called me. Road trips in particular are my siren songs, especially if I’m driving the blue roads, routes that wind off-the-beaten-path. I love the sense of freedom, spontaneity, and adventure. It’s a way to break away from everyday life, those quotidian routines and expectations. Being in unfamiliar places unbuttons habits and preconceptions, and thus opens us to new experiences. And it’s exciting to wander, get lost, and along the way, discover something unexpected.
