We live in a frenetic world. I make these pictures to remind myself to pause. To stop long enough to catch my breath. To breathe in some life. To linger long enough in a well-lit spot to have some sense of it.
I work quickly, often making only 1-2 photographs of the subject before moving on. I shoot with a Mamiya 6x6 rangefinder using color negative film. It packs well into a small bag I can keep handy, thus lending itself to the spontaneity of this series.
These photographs were made when I was on my way someplace else, waiting for a friend, driving across town. It is these moments, the non-climactic minutes and hours, that we spend the majority of our lives. I celebrate them as a means of staying connected.
