Photographer's statement:  I try to avoid bringing any preconceived style or "vision" to my photographs, believing that each image is best approached on its own terms, speaking its strengths in its own voice. Nevertheless, the Zen qualities of simplicity, mystery, and transience hold special allure for me. I am an enthusiastic user of digital technology, but I prefer to limit its application. In general, I will not go beyond the kinds of adjustments that film photographers have made in their darkrooms for many decades. These words inspire me: The contemplation of things as they are, without error or confusion, without substitution or imposture, is in itself a nobler thing than a whole harvest of invention. – Francis Bacon via Dorothea Lange
