Daily Camera

While much emphasis is placed on the photograph's ability to represent optical accuracy, I think that another inherent quality is equally significant. It's the camera's habit of capturing inadvertent banality.

Uninvited objects and events often slip into the picture space beneath the general intention of the photographer. These are the signatures of the world... surprising artifacts discovered only after the fact. Photographs insist that the universe we inhabit is always as slippery and precise as jazz.

Photography's most important contributions to human experience is its constant reminder that idealized visions of the world are deeply flawed. The real world is textured with accidents, flourishes and blemishes. Photography has made me more watchful and reveals, in turn, a landscape of unfinished narratives and incomplete evidence. This section is a sketchbook of ideas, rogues and orphans.
