I took thousands of photographs of jewelry I’ve made over the years but it wasn’t until recently that I pointed a camera outside, at random objects, to photograph them. Once I did everything changed. I like to shoot in the Sonoran desert because it constantly surprises with intricate mysteries to discover and capture. Everything in the desert looks the same on one level – brown, grey, rocky, muted green, but closer up and in between the cracks you’ll find plenty of interesting and diverse things going on. I like to shoot in the city because I like to capture people and their things and monuments and artifacts in moments of arbitrary randomness.
