What is Wonderlust?
Wonder is a genuine feeling of awe brought on by something unexpected. Lust is irresistible desire. I'm attracted to subjects that make my heart beat a little faster. In a word, WonderLust.
My process is random. I fight the urge to pre-visualize; I'm struck by the accidental image. I need to experience deeply what is here, right now. The camera enables me to vanish into moments before they are gone.
This ongoing body of work, "WonderLust," embraces sensation and a passion for what's unseen. It's as if the subjects find me. I have no choice but to turn that irresistible desire into something tangible, into a photograph. I want to seduce the viewer to feel as I do – to know pleasure is to be alive.
