My work intends to challenge assumptions about what is possible and affirm the power of positive thought. I delight in turning the appearance of permanence on its head. My images explore themes of ephemerality, possibility, and intention. The rock balances are usually as precarious as they appear to be, sometimes taking an hour or more of careful adjustment before they stand. Stones range in size from just 10 or 20 pounds to 200 pounds or more. The rock balances rarely last for longer than an hour, depending primarily on the wind, and all too often a balanced stone falls before I have taken a single photo. I live in Bedford, MA with my wife and two young daughters. Photography, and especially balancing rocks, is a meditative act for me. It is a celebration of the power of visualizing positive outcomes in a precarious world.
