Artist Statement

These images have no people in them, yet they are peopled. An open door, an unmade bed, a stairway that turns a corner – all suggest that someone has been there. The signs of human presence haunt apparently empty spaces. The light filters through the angle of an open door into the room beyond. A curtain falls in folds to the floor diffusing the sunlight as someone imagined it would. A stairway descends and turns a corner. Patterns emerge, created by light and shadow and the chance arrangement of things. With my camera I try to capture these glimpses of life.
