I photograph people, places or things that move me. Photography has been a creative and spiritual pursuit for me since I was 20 years old.
In the course of my travels around the world, I have photographed the people as well as the environments which are so different from our own. I have photographed the people of rural Mexico, of Cuba and Asia for many years, and I love memories that those photos trigger in me.
10 years ago, I took on a project photographing the First Nations churches of BC. Over a five year period, I travelled extensively, seeking and recording these buildings which are among the oldest in the province and the last remaining evidence of the colonialist period. I published a book "Spirit Dwellings" and since publication, five of the churches have been burned to the ground.
Looking forward, I plan to move toward landscape photography within Canada. This summer I will be driving from Vancouver to Dawson City, and points in between. Much of that territory was visited during my church project, but I will be looking with different eyes this time.
