artist statement and explanation of work

 

i consider myself a street photographer.   i feel the most gratification from the images i discover on the street.  i look at the world and try to find something extraordinary in the ordinary.  portray the simple things punctuated by a question mark, not an exclamation point.  i prefer my images to elicit questions and provoke interpretation rather than simple acceptance and admiration.  

 

i find it difficult to define my work because i really expect the viewer to define it.  my goal is to elicit a response, emotional i suppose, when my work is considered.
