Mike Cavaroc, Jackson Member Since February 2008 Artist Statement My camera comes with me everywhere. Not just because of the old "Ya never know." saying, but because when I look through my camera, I see the world the way I want it to be. I see majestic landscapes and detailed beauty complete with dramatic colors and bold contrast. The viewfinder acts as a window to this pristine, natural world that I can enter into at any moment I choose. It's my release, my getaway and my freedom. I take my camera with me everywhere so that I can get to that place no matter where I am, or what I'm experiencing. It's always there to keep me in balance and to continue creating the world in which I want to live. Grand Teton National Park and Jackson Hole, Wyoming have provided me with an unfathomable and never-ending amount of scenery and experiences to help me escape to. Despite the unending beauty however, I'm constantly searching for new lands to discover to add to my own, personal world. I have my camera to document the development and remind me of which direction I want to be moving in, all simply by looking through a viewfinder.
With so many people focused on so many things going wrong with the world, I prefer to see a rich, pure Mother Nature thriving around every corner. Thanks to my camera, I can capture her beauty as I want to see it and remember it in just that way.
