Influences

I've had a life-long fascination with the possibilities of perception. Not only in the way that matter is viewed from a physical perspective but how they are viewed from an internal perspective. Nature as a subject is ideal in my examination of these possibilities as it is not stagnant but in constant transition. As such, my goal is to capture a moment which exemplifies transition and show it from a unique and unfamiliar vantage point in order to play upon not only how the eye processes that view but how it can play upon human understanding.
