Winter Wren, Sloan Gorge, 2009, archival pigment print, 11×14”
I have been an avid birder since 2005 when I caught a glimpse of a Blackburniam Warbler. It became an obsession. Eventually the camera began to come along with me.
By capturing these rare moments I hope to connect the viewer to the natural world, bringing them closer to the splendor that surrounds us and lie just beyond the edge of our daily sight.
