I consider myself a memory collector more than a photographer. Memories of my past, people and places, memories of faded dreams, memories of flowers, birds and the sun as it crosses the sky. It takes time to gather them up. When I make a photograph it feels like a meditation, being in the moment, counting the time for each exposure in seconds, and minutes; sometimes waiting days and months. Developing and printing also takes time, in the darkroom or in the sun. I am the memory in my photographs and I hope to hold on to it as long as I can.
