I’ve noticed that many of my most satisfying photographs were made in and around my home. We often have the idea that the exotic is the better subject for our efforts. It’s probably a natural way of thinking – I think the familiar is so familiar that we tend to overlook it. One benefit of using our most familiar surroundings for art is a renewed appraisal of the value of what we have.
When my photography achieves the status of art it is as a recognition of the presence of light.
