By using pinhole cameras and long exposure times I record, not an instant, but rather the passage of time at a site. Viewers have said that my work evokes the memory-image that remains for them long after they have viewed a familiar location. I think this recognizes the importance I have always assigned to time, memory, and capturing the essence of the place, in my images of architectural icons and classic travelers destinations. All that remains on film is the trace left by what people have built or carved or manipulated (in the form of gardens, sculpture or architecture). The passing human figure normally disappears, or lingers only in ghostly form.
