I began taking photographs in 2007 after a lucky combination of driving the backroads of montana, having a film camera in the truck, then comimg upon an abandoned cabin just as it began to snow. When I developed that particular photo later - I was hooked - on photography, on the idea of capturing simple things, of suspending a moment in time.
I spent many years as a primatologist working with great apes, gorillas in particular. Much of that work involved observing the subtle and quietly changing dynamics within a troop. I think photography is just another way of doing behavioral observations - taking in the world, gettng lost in the moment.
There is so much beauty in this magical place we call earth. I am constantly bowled over by the grace in nature and in man's ability to create inspiration through art and architecture. I hope my camera can bear witness - to a father holding a young son's hand whilst walking in the mountains of montana, to drops of rain on the petals of a flower in a small village in Scotland, to a coyote hunting in yellwostone national park, completly oblvious to all around but the immediate task at hand - catching dinner.
I hope you enjoy and that for a moment you get lost, beth
