At Arms Length
Artist Statement



A tradition among nearly all photographers is the self-portrait that reveals the intimate inner life of the artist or the silly piece of visual evidence of an event. What I began in 1994 as a photo journal project became a way of life. I have since been informally documenting my life in the context of work, play, family, and friends. All taken while the camera is held at my arms length, I attempt to capture a moment that describes my relationship to the time, the place, and the people within the frame. This tradition has yielded surprising compositions as well as interesting public interactions as onlookers often interrupt insisting to take the photograph for me.
