Capturing the essence of road work or a construction site is what cones find most rewarding. The challenge is not in depicting the task but in recognizing the totality of the work. A natural street abstraction of color, shape, light, and shadows. The urban landscape would be nothing without them.
It is the impermanence of the cones that makes them so special, and therefore a large part of the value accorded to them lies in their ephemeral nature and the fact that the same moment will never come again—as with people.
Capturing the essence of a scene in a single instant, that which emerges @ the moment of conception, is what I find most rewarding. The challenge is not in depicting the forms but in recognizing the totality of the image. Magically infusing power into small incidents. Transforming everyday objects and moments into memorable icons. My interests are in exposing the inner-city spaces we inhabit. These Urban Landscape images transform into opportunities for formal, aesthetic, and social invention, blurring the sharp contours of fact and fiction, image and reality. To unite, when possible, the compositional rigor of documentary photography with the magic of Romanticism. Lee and I have been working together for many years, not only as a creative partnership, but a life-long one as well.
