My intention is to capture the beauty of the natural world in every situation, be it in bloom, decline, decay, or somewhere in between. As a scientist, I see the natural world from many points of view; from the many wavelengths of light that make up each color, the microscopic organisms in a pool of water, the breakdown of chlorophyll that causes a leaf to change color in Autumn, and the chemical bonds that break in a decaying tree. Science and Art are partners, lovers, friends. Science has made it possible to capture images in every step of its evolution from daguerreotypes to the most advanced cameras available today. I have that relationship in mind as I make photographs and try to convey some of that feeling to the viewer.
