Some of his Quotations:

“I often see the materials of photography as being a type of terrain. Emulsions, liquid developers, silver salts, and fixers interact, and I construct a landscape that I need to first explore in my mind’s eye if I am to make it manifest as an artful image in silver.”

"Photography is a medium, a language, through which I might come to experience directly, live more more closely with, the interaction between myself and nature."
