I photograph natural forms because I find it fulfilling. They stimulate in me a wide range of emotions, and I find them neither limited nor limiting. They resonate with the themes of great art, and with the rhythms of life itself. They achieve their impact with simplicity and without pretension; the appropriate response is humility. They have been here a long time, have seen and survived much. One can feel only optimistic in their presence.
