A quest for essential meaning in everyday scenes

I try to express, with camera and computer, what I can only hint at with words. Through observing, recording and interpreting the visual world, I seek to emphasize the link between personal and universal experiences. My goal as a photographer is not to entertain with pretty pictures. It is to communicate moments from my own experience that have been more substance than shadow; to capture timeless, random moments where routine existence seems to give way to a heightened sensibility.

The texture of peeling paint, the play of sunlight, the enigmatic look on a stranger's face, the subtle interplay of nature's colors; these are examples of visual catalysts that trigger these moments of transcendent clarity. By way of this visual George Garbeckassociation, I attempt to evoke these moments in my work, hoping that others may find some connection with them.
