Artist Statement

Ethereal Luminescence is an ongoing series of abstract, expressionistic
photographs that I originally created at a light show and continue to capture at fireworks shows, urban street scenes and amusement parks. Through abstraction, my photographs capture the drama and excitement of these vibrant and colorful public places that we all enjoy so much; creating a mesmerizing, symphonic explosion of color, light and motion.

Ethereal Luminescence began in a botanical garden forest, at night, where people were viewing a light show. It evolved as I continued to capture those feelings at dozens of public events that use dramatic lighting.
