Photographing Sam’s faceted, mirrored sculptures and our spirited, sensitive horses is what occupies me at the moment. I am beside them dawn to dusk. Both defy the presence of a camera. Both reflect my presence back. I need to be physically close, yet not intrusive. I need to photograph what is before me, what I am experiencing and feels so intimate, yet without my presence making it change. Snow and storm, heat and dust, day and night; this is my work.
I make my photographs because I need to see more. I am searching for what I sense but cannot see with my naked eye, knowing that my photographs might reveal the extra-ordinary of the ordinary world, a place where meaning lies. It is an instinctive process that began the first moment I looked through a camera.
