About Ron

Ron at the Carmel Grain Elevator

Photograph by Satch

I aspire to discover and reveal the spiritual essence and truth of my environment. For me, photography is a vital element of life; it is esoteric and abstract, yet temporal and existent.

Anything at any time can be subject matter. Often I make images as a reaction to the environment in which I find myself or to something that I observe by looking beyond the obvious characteristics and form of a subject, either instantly or over a period of time.

Favorite quote about photography:

“Concern yourself not with the question whether the medium, photography, is art.  The question is dated and absurd to begin with.  You are art or not; whatever you produce is or isn’t.  And don’t think about that either, just do, act.”
Walker Evans (1903-1975)
