    I used telescope, optical filters and monochrome cameras to capture different wavelengths of light.

The astrophotographs in Abstracting Eternity aim to capture nebulae, the massive clouds of gas and dust in which stars are born. Because nebulae represent the universe in the process of creation, still relatively formless, they lend themselves to a degree of abstraction that appeals to me as an artist. This takes my images a step away from pure science. I never want viewers to forget, though, that the photographs capture the universe as it was billions of light years ago—an eternity that inspires awe, humbles us with our own insignificance, and puts our human troubles in perspective.
