Artist's Statement

“The key to capturing fire is in the shutter speed of the camera. The difference between a shutter open for 1/1000th of a second and 1/4000 is both dramatic and thought provoking.

The faster the shutter the more remarkable detail, sharpness and form appears in these images of dancing flames.

A biologist sees more by increasing the magnification of her microscope. In the case of fire, time is the magnifying lens. The smaller the instant of exposure, the more intricacy appears in the shot. The smaller the instant, the more there is to see.

In capturing fire I am awed by the spiralling infinity that explodes in the ever shortened instant. "
