    Artist Statement

    "My aim as a photographer/artist is to nudge viewers in the direction of greater understanding of the world and its people. I believe art has the capacity to open minds and hearts and to help people see the common interests they share with everyone else. In addition I think art has a unique role to play in helping us understand and care for our environment.

    "If my work can promote this understanding and caring, and can help prompt any action in this direction, then I feel I am doing my job as an artist."
