Artist Statement:
The ability to capture a moment and have it forever amazes me, knowing that moment will never happen again and I have it.
As long as I can remember, I have always enjoyed looking at and shooting photos. I have always been a visual person and being able to hold a photo is incredible. Every time I snap a photo I am striving for the ultimate photo.
When I am working on a project, such as these travel photos, I look for the wonder that would have lasting power and capture it forever. China offers that and more, it has such mystery in every photo. China has history and culture and the magic is capturing it. This series of photographs came about because of the love of experiencing new sights and places. Photography is a great form of art for change, to be able to go in a different direction while holding onto the same vision. These photographs took me in a different direction and gave me a great challenge. I like angles and reflections and you will find this throughout this body of work. I want to bring to you some of the mystery and magic that is China.
