About the photosence website

If you feel that the beauty of life is a no-brainer, I am in good company and I think you will appreciate what you find here.
The photosence website communicates a pursuit of beauty, the type you can find anywhere, whenever you look for it.

For me- the art to find and (re-)create it and the love to pass it on are a single, headless undertaking. A ‘no plan no goal, just shove that coal’ kind of thing.
Instruments of choice are those of any contemporary photographer; a digital camera, digital processing tools to develop what I shoot and
lastly, a professional printer to create the end result.

The prints that are put up for sale in the web shop are meant to grace the places that belong to your life with an artistic expression.
On my part, a gesture that needs nothing in return, meaning that my images do not need to be understood to do them justice.
They do not represent points of view, make statements, vent comments, messages or opinions.
The things they show are seen and presented as an expression of their own essence and captured for their beauty. Shot in the simplicity of
direct experience they are not symbolic of anything.
On their individual product pages I have used the short description area to write the stories of how they came to be.

Most often I write down what I remember about the circumstances and conditions of their capture. When the title and the story reflect how I look at certain things
I simply share the things I am reminded of by the final image, no up-front message intended there either.
What the images will and may mean to you and what you can see in them is part of you and I have no business there. I try to pass on, to the best of my abilities, the beauty of what I see.
And whatever the image means to you, I hope it lets you connect in a positive way. I love it if a photograph makes you feel good or brings you in touch with something that you value and appreciate.

Perhaps my artist statement is found in the activity of my work itself as it takes place in the general spirit of an ongoing experience that life is right as rain.
I sense that my photography carries a sense of gratitude for our capacity to discover this for ourselves. If you find the stillness that people detect in my images,
you are with what I find to be at the heart of things.
So there it is anyway I guess, a vision distilled into a statement.

The albums and galleries under the menu tab ‘work’ are alternating selections that share what else I make besides the prints that I put up for sale.
The shop exists for two reasons, the first is that it enables me to create more. The other reason is that it helps to support projects that aid people in need.
Part of the profits go to an old age home in Pondicherry, India. {link here}

UPDATE: I am planning projects in which the images are sought out to reflect a distinct aspect of a particular theme.
Such projects will be made available as boxed sets of prints. I want to start the first project somewhere winter 2020

Contact me freely if you want to have a print of an image that you don’t see in the shop or if you would like me to make something just for you.
