“Some people say ,“What does it matter if Tribal cultures fade away.” The answer is simple. When asked the meaning of being human, all the diverse cultures of the world respond with 10,000 different voices.” – Wade Davis
Working on the images for my upcoming show. Painting with encaustic wax and oil paints is reminding me of how much I missed the darkroom and working with mixed media. The feeling of being on a journey; shaping and sculpting each image. Creating images to express not just what I saw but what I felt during my travels. My work is interpretive in nature, a combination of the artistic and documentary style of photography. When I am visiting these places, I feel alive and comfortable. I am looking for the grace notes, for the sense of wonder in our world.
