I photograph as I experience a journey and later I organize the experience by creating composite pictures. These pictures are constructed by using overlapping and intertwined scenes that may or may not have been computer manipulated. The computer assisted images are then printed on archival papers using inkjet technology. For me, the final image has the same impact/meaning as an entry found in a personal journal.
