Where Light Dwells

“In the tradition of sacred architecture, light has been a symbol of the transcendent, a metaphor for the unknowable. Sacred space becomes a visual theology, a sculpture in light that I then re-interpret through the medium of photography. These images in silver become a meditation that expresses man attempts at self-definition through matter, form and luminosity.”
