Artist Statement:

I have taken photographs on trips all around the world, but especially love the opportunities offered by today’s cellphone cameras to capture the exquisite but fleeting visual imagery of everyday moments. These grayscale pictures were taken using my iPhone near my home in the Riverside neighborhood of Wichita, Kansas.
