Jim shares his views: “The environment around us is 360 degrees of completely immersive shade, sort, and motion in a consistent point out of alter. My camera sees only small frozen rectangles of that visual cacophony. But far from that staying a legal responsibility, it allows me to seriously concentration and seek out out the “choice bits” of the entire world – preset fragments which for me stand for attractiveness, secret, and/or surprise that could easily if not pass by unnoticed. I’m fascinated by breaking the bonds of context, serendipitous style, shade relationships, visual layers, and textural components which can transcend the two dimensional character of my photographs. For me, photography is a impressive tool for my continuing discovery of natural beauty in apparently mundane and unremarkable fragments of the world.”
