Speed. Life today moves along at an ever-quickening pace. I readily observe this fast pace in my own life. I am an artist, and, thus, my work over the last couple of years, reflects this observation. I am creating art that makes manifest the accelerating pace of modern life.
When I photograph, I move the camera in response to my subject matter. I am no longer a passive recorder of my found compositions. Instead, I become a performance artist, a choreographer, a painter, and a creator in the photographic realm. Through my own movement, I obscure the detail, alter the forms, and create new textures in my photographs. I imprint my physical response to the energy of my subjects, as well as adding my own energies to the photographic compositions. I am creating visual impressions of the fast pace of modern life.
