My goals are to deepen my ability to see the world around me and to increase the visibility of my work.
For the last few years, I have been photographing primarily in Oregon’s Rogue Valley where I live. Since I know it well, I challenge myself to continually uncover new visual insights and to use new processes to express what I see.
My main project right now is The Winston Eye. This is a weekly newsletter featuring recent images sent out to over 1000 people. This simple exercise spurs me to create new images on a consistent basis.
Having an audience that is interested in my work helps me to keep growing and to take new risks. During the period that I’ve been posting on The Winston Eye, I’ve received two artist residencies and a solo exhibit at The Governors Office in Salem, Oregon.
I’m inspired by both the breathtaking quietude of the natural landscape and simple surprises in the ordinary. To be in the midst of an awesome vista when light and atmosphere come together to create nothing short of magic is a sacred experience.
I also love to explore the world of man and manmade objects. While there’s no question how awesome a landscape can be, there’s a playfulness that I love to explore in the manmade world.
This usually takes the form of juxtaposition and/or unexpected relationship. Finding surprises in the ordinary is my way of expressing the irony, humor and design (usually unconscious), which is part of our daily experience, yet goes largely unnoticed.
