I have always been interested in nature, having grown up in an environment where a love of the outdoors was encouraged. For a long time I have been photographically studying abstract and random qualities found in nature, and am especially interested in reflection. How the constantly changing reflective surface modulation affects the reflected image is of particular interest to me: I am fascinated by the art nouveau swirls, bends, and distortions of the image created by ripples, swells, or even wind on the surface of water.
