Change: (verb), to make or become different, transform, arrive at a fresh place, become new. (Noun), the act of making or becoming different.
Change is part of the California culture; its environments, buildings and people have rarely left monuments or moments of any lasting presence. As a Californian, I am inspired to photograph the remnants of those disappearing icons and notice the transformation of the land and its peoples symbols. I am drawn to photographing the ghosts in our cultural past and in the landscapes around me. I love California, electric with possibilities, alive with opportunities, sometimes choked by its own ambitions, but always dynamic.
