More Than Meets the Eye

ARTIST STATEMENT

People walk the Earth every day, going to work, going shopping, or just to get outside and away from the couch. But they are always on some kind of electronic. They do not stop to soak in the small things in this world that, if you take a closer look, you can see a wonder that will mesmerize you.

I enjoy taking photos for two reasons. First, because it is relaxing and I find a calm feeling when I have a camera in my hand, and second, because I stop and take time to really see the beauty in everything and I like to show other people that. I can look at any everyday object and capture it in a way that you would not normally see. I want to show people that if they slow down once in a while, they could see the incredible treasures that lay within the simple items of life.
