"Drifting Through Time" is a series that brings together natural elements and humanity as we travel through time. Humans much like nature are transitory. We occupy but a blip in time as individuals with nature existing in it's many states and forms for millions of years. My work brings together small glimpses much like a video in time lapse mode as the imagery fades in and out and glimpses of time overlap. The act of capturing places and spaces in time and bringing them together in a way that they complement each other and enhance each others design and beauty. Stay safe.

Art became important to me at an early age with an interest in photography. I graduated in 1983 from the BFA Program in Photography at the Maryland Institute College of Art which introduced him to the work and philosophies of influential artists: Irving Penn’s quality of light; Cartier-Bresson’s composition, use of space, and "the decisive moment”; Pete Turner, who felt that the transparency was not the end product, but just the beginning; and lastly Georgia O’Keeffe’s paintings of flowers and nature were a revelation, inspiring me to look closer at the hidden beauty of the natural world.
