“The goal of my photography is to further the viewer’s understanding and appreciation of the natural world, to contribute on a global scale, photographs that help us comprehend the bigger picture.
In creating volcano images, I utilize movement, light, and texture of volcanic activity to open human emotions to the pulse of the Earth.
I have chosen Kilauea Volcano on the island of Hawaii as my primary subject. Nowhere else on Earth is creation happening on a continual basis at such a rapid rate. I find it crucial that there exist visual reminders that the Earth is alive and fulfilling an agenda of its own.
It is my desire to continue generating positive inspiration by focusing on photography that captures this essence of creation, beauty, and raw power.”
