as a photographer, i am interested in the convergence of time and happenstance, which can lend an aesthetic quality to something that would normally go unnoticed. most of these images are close-up details of driftwood and detritus in the tidelines of various beaches around washington, the hulls of scraped and dented barges in a canal near my home, and other ambient details of nature and industry.

for many years my photography was strictly documentary- the images frequently looked abstract but were unaltered. more recently, i have been 'mirroring' images with my computer; a process which imposes form, pattern, and sometimes texture on the image by connecting and enhancing lines and patterns that are present in the photo. the images are not colored; except for occasionally enhancing contrast, the photos are unaltered.
