While I love the beauty I witness all around me, I am as compelled by something I cannot see as much as that which I can see. We have many names for it - energy, ch'i, life force, vitality, God, spirit. Can a photograph record what cannot be seen? I have an affinity for photographing with my camera only inches from my subjects. It's as though I'm convinced that the closer I get, the more I might, maybe, just maybe, somehow see inside and touch the miracle, touch the spirit within these things.
