As a photographic artist, I have begun to realize that the images I am privileged to record or "capture" have their greatest context in my own personal faith and practice of God's presence. From a different perspective, I, as the photographer, might even become the captured one and God the Chaser............
The famous photographer, Anne Libowitz, once remarked that the camera becomes merely an instrument that teaches one to see without a camera.I think that is a profound idea - the idea of practice seeing eventually becoming real seeing - and a wonderful metaphor for the journey of faith.
It is my hope that this "practice seeing" will, in some small way, point the observer towards something greater than art - that is, their own journey of seeking God and practicing His presence - and ultimately a friendship with the God who inspires.
