Artist Statement

As a photo artist, my quest is to make magical the mundane. As Blanche DuBois said in A Streetcar Named Desire, "I don't want realism, I want magic." As a street photographer, I take it where I find it.
I find mini miracles amid the ubiquitous. Urban environments yield images abutting on the absolute.
How do I recognize the icon I wish to create? To quote a judge describing obscenity, "I can't define it, but I know it when I see it."
