I have called the body of work that I have done over the past decade “Imaging Biodiversity” and it is about seeing the things that live on our planet in a particular intense way. Using extreme resolution, focus and enlargements through scanning and HD Video, have become critical elements of my working process. Recently I spent fourteen months in Sonora Mexico as A Fulbright Garcia Robles research Scholar. Having the ability to work in different cultures and geographies with new plants and animals has developed profound changes in my understanding of the world around us. Being from somewhere else I noticed details in things that are often overlooked or even considered mundane. By handling them in the passionate way, it has brought about a keen interest from the people around me who I have had a pleasure to work with. Also learning their way of seeing and understanding things from their perspective has been a great benefit to me as well and has broadened the entire experience that for always be an inseparable part of my being.
