I have been taking photographs since I was a child, toting around my Brownie Instamatic. The look of things has always meant a lot to me, and a great photo can express the “feel” of the look too. The natural world is my passion, and I strive to convey the richness and importance of wild life on Earth. Since Art in the Garden 2012, I have traveled to Patagonia and Indonesia. The magnificence of Patagonia is astounding, as always. In Indonesia, I was scuba diving in Raja Ampat, the center of the center of the most diverse and abundant underwater life I have ever experienced. It was truly phenomenal. I will have a few photos from Raja Ampat available at Art in the Garden, likely with more to come later.
Years ago, an art dealer purchased two of my photos for a wellness clinic and matched them with an Hasidic saying. It has been one of my favorites ever since.
“When you walk across the fields with your mind pure and holy, then from all the stones, and all growing things, and all animals, the sparks of their soul come out and cling to you, and then they are purified and become a holy fire in you.”
That’s what I try to show–the sparks of soul.
