    Artist Statement

    "At the Morteros is part of my most recent body of work, Nocturnes. Nocturnes continues my ongoing dialog with the landscape. To me, there is something fascinating about the dark: still, serene and overwhelmingly peaceful. At night, familiar places can look very different. As a result perceptions change giving me a heightened appreciation for these places.

    "Employing long exposures, these images were created using ambient moonlight and light painting techniques with an LED flashlight from multiple angles to create the effects I envisioned."
