Photography is my spiritual discipline. My first published photographs were taken to illustrate my work as a newspaper reporter and freelance writer, but later, as I followed a career path that led to ordained ministry in the Episcopal Church, my intent has shifted from showing what happened to exploring what matters. I’m especially interested in the way light can be a metaphor for presence, and in particular, the way it breaks in and illuminates–light, like grace, changes everything. Lately I’ve been using a drone to photograph the river, a frequent subject for my work. I’m finding that these aerial photos not only offer new perspectives on an old view but also evoke a sense of calm through distance from the everyday world.
