Using the camera and the modern darkroom (the computer and software) as tools, the artist creates images that evoke a sense of place or event as well as expressing content and emotion. He controls and adjusts the images until he has created a unique result, personalized by the hand of the artist to contain new and often different meaning than the first captured photograph.
