Environments, natural and man made, have a vital effect on the behavior, health, productivity and general well being of people. With this in mind, architecture and how it fulfills the psychological needs of people is a source of great interest to me. Cities nurture the innate humanity of people with places for gathering and for privacy; places for them to be participants and to be spectators.
The human body is an organism with a physical structure, as is architecture. People in an architectural space become an integral part of that space, giving it life and purpose. In a city, people live in a balance between its formal architectural elements and its social street life. It is this that I observe everyday as an artist, a teacher, a parent, a citizen and a photographer. The formal architecture of the city in combination with the interactions that take place there is the subject of my photographs.
