"Beauty will save the world," Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Idiot
I want to bring people in touch with the natural world where they live so I create images that represent nature near where I live in a way that shows relationship. Notice that most of my wildlife images portray eye contact with the subject. I live in the Delaware River Watershed and that is close to the Atlantic Ocean shore of New Jersey from Cape May to Barnegat Light. The rivers and other streams near us are the lifeblood of their watersheds, the landscapes they drain, and therefore a vital energy in our lives and the lives of all creatures and flora.
The Delware River is a natural treasure with two national parks, The Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area and the Upper Delaware National Recreation Area. On the New Jersey side it includes Worthington State Forest and is close to Stokes State Forest. Many waterfalls are close by this longest undamed river East of the Mississippi. Major tributaries include the Lackawaxen River, the Schuylkill River and the Lehigh River.
"A human being is part of the whole called by us 'the universe,' a part limited in time and space. We experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings, as separate from the rest--a kind of optical illusion of our consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and affections for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of understanding and compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of Nature in its beauty." Albert Einstein
