" I love working in classic black and white. Taking the impact of color away from an image breaks it down to the true tonal range and invokes a sense of depth and clarity. I find it intriguing to study a subject to find whether I can remove the color's emotional impact to achieve that elusive sense of wonder and depth, yet still inspire a profound connection to the viewer. I strive to make my prints come alive as much as possible without manipulating them on a computer, though I certainly appreciate those who do it well. I create art inside the camera on one frame. What you see is what I saw, not an illusion. "
