Middle America is vast, open and expansive – life can be relatively simple and commonplace. Such was my childhood growing up there, before moving to distant cities and countries with divergent cultures.
Traveling sparked my curiosity to learn, explore, connect, and appreciate our diverse world.
Layers within a scenic landscape or interactive humanity lure my eye to capture a reality observed just beyond the obvious; visually empathizing with the overlooked, identifying with the ordinary, and savoring nature’s elegant beauty.
Each image reveals a paused moment during my journeys; connecting to the essence of my childhood – joy in the ordinary and simple beauty.
