    Artist Statement

    "I could never paint, and if I think about it, I couldn't draw either. Photography became a tool where I can paint with light and a color palate from my feelings, visions and dreams. It's like lightning striking in my mind, and I must create it as soon as I can, before moving forward to the next dream. Imagine to yourself... I am living the dream - Where subject matters, and my journey is my destination.

    "In this case, I photographed my girlfriend, Sidney (lucky me), and had this vision sitting in the back of my head exactly for 15 minutes before sunset until I made her run with me to the brightest spot in her backyard. When I took the photograph and looked on the fancy LCD on my camera, I knew that I was at the very beginning of a self-journey. I better sleep and develop my dreams and visions, then be awake and waste my time thinking. Then I learned - If you have something in mind, just shoot it, don't think twice. Twice is too much time."
