By working small, Schwaberow says he is forced to condense what he is trying to say. He thinks of his work as color Haiku, large places compressed, intimate glimpses through small windows.
Schwaberow hopes that his reverance for the subject matter comes through to the viewer and "acts as a kind of medicine, or like a little piece of healing." Schwaberow explains, "I am interested in honoring a small event in the hope that it will help people see that they are surrounded by these small magical events in their lives that maybe they forgot to notice."
