Artist Statement

My photographs are a celebration of life in all its facets.  

When I am photographing, my feelings overtake my sense of reason and rationale. I become fascinated by the subject, the lighting, the movement or lack of it; the whole process becomes intuitive, and the composition falls into place.

I never anticipate any specific reaction on the viewer's part. I leave that to each individual, according to his or her state of mind at the moment.

Life is a treasure to be enjoyed and celebrated.  This is what I invite my viewers to do.

I dedicate this website to the memory of my father, Joyce D'Amore, who always respected my feelings; thanks Dad. I love you.
