Nuance, I’d say, means redefining the smallest of details, parts that elude our daily scrutiny of this world. It means spotting a gash from the seemingly obscure, making out a white stain from the blinding dark. Nuance tilts towards shapeshift. The slight difference between our lifestyles & all other entities.

Just as the past is different from now, transpositionally, the future can be different from now. Ultimately, history bears witness to the inescapability of difference and the inevitability of change.

Susan Stryker

The antidote to rage is nuance.

Not only do I think justice is possible—I think redemption is possible. I think we are put here for a purpose. Every one of us is an utterly unique being. Even if reincarnation is true, the fact is that I will only be this person in this time, in this place, once, in an infinite expanse of space and time, which is pretty astonishing.

I’ve been making photographs for more than twenty years. I have shot commissioned portraits, events, episodic video stills, interior design, architecture, and botanical rarities for scientific texts. This, in addition to my own personal everyday wonder at the glory and misery that is our existence.
