I’m drawn to photography for the same reasons I am drawn to music. For me, the act of taking a photo is a meditative experience, there is only the present moment. Looking through the lens quiets the white noise of daily life. When I am framing a shot -- whether it’s a tree or a waterfall or sunlight filtering in a window – my little corner of the world suddenly makes more sense. With the camera I have a chance to capture in light and shadow and shape that ineffable experience. Edward Weston, a brilliant mid-century photographer once said, “You can’t explain a Bach fugue. If you could, you would explain away its very meaning – it’s reason for existence.” I couldn’t agree more.
I hope you enjoy what you see here. If you'd like to purchase a print, use the links to Mpix (great quality and service) or drop me a note and I'll print, mat and frame a custom order for you.

Matthew, I am thrilled to have received from the CSO a lovely framed print of the front of Music Hall with Washington Park in the foreground. My husband and I have been volunteers with the orchestra for at least a dozen years. I can't recall when we weren't down at Music Hall! The print now hangs in our family room, the place where we enjoy classical music and listening to WGUC and the CSO. Thank you for your beautiful perspective on our little place in the world!
