My first published photographs were taken to illustrate my work as a newspaper reporter and freelance writer. Later, as I followed a career path that led to ordained ministry in the Episcopal Church, photography became a form of spiritual discipline through which I seek to notice the presence that lies shimmering beneath every surface. I’m especially interested in the way light can be a metaphor for presence, and in particular in the way it breaks in and illuminates—light, like grace, changes everything. Lately in my photography I’ve been exploring how people interact with others around them, each encounter consciously or unconsciously reflecting the character of their connection to a greater whole.
