I photograph what I encounter as I wander around, curious about the world and everything in it. I hope to create an image that will ask more questions than it answers, an image that you the viewer will look at more than once because something about it makes you curious. You don't have to necessarily love the image, but if it makes you stop for a moment and think, then I'll be happy.

Sometimes I feel like my mission is to draw attention to the beauty and dignity of the ordinary. The ordinary person going about their daily life. The ordinary weed or flower or ripple of water. Each and every one of these will speak volumes to us if only we will pay them or it a moment's attention.

My friend Brooks Jensen, publisher of Lenswork Magazine, once wrote about my work that "Ethridge is teaching us to patiently wait." And we all know that good things come to those who wait.
