From is artist's statement: "Nature and landscape are compelling themes for photography, and they have been among my passions since childhood. I strive for a visceral dimension in every image, to convey the energy or serenity—or whatever—that lies beneath the visual. I seek the charm and depth often overlooked in our surroundings, be they majestic vistas or roadside flora."
