Artist Statement

Given my urban sensibility, I never expected to be shooting photographs of trees.  But once the impulse hit, I became fascinated by two challenges:

  • How to transcend predictable "oh how pretty" pictures?
  • How to incorporate urban life?

So, I crisscrossed Chapel Hill/Carrboro for a month, outracing spring and craning my neck for answers.  In this process, I not only became an ardent friend of trees.  Ii also learned how the camera can translate them into art.
