To photograph the essence of
a forest, I stand still. I try to
have a quiet mind and an
open heart. I listen. I can hear
the forest singing. I open
doors and windows to my
soul, step around
preconceptions and push
aside mental barriers.
With gratitude I drink the
nurturing gift of the forest.
The photograph records the encounter between myself and the
forest. And then, it may awaken in the viewer a memory of
or longing for a connection with the natural world…
