Images in our society are fast replacing words as our primary language they define our views on beauty, truth, and history. The Environment plays an integral role in my work. Nature makes me feel alive and at the same time completely insignificant and at the mercy of the elements.
I am especially drawn to abandon places and their mysteries they remind me that the ground we stand on is constantly evolving. I am trying to tell a unique story through the juxtaposition of the subject and its surroundings while using just enough information to spur the imagination and leave room for personal interpretations. Many photographers see life as it really is and find great pleasure in capturing this, however, I want to capture life as it is in my imagination or in a somebody else’s reality I don’t understand. The things people could see if they would look hard enough. It is amazing to me what the human eye sees and can capture with a lens. The exquisite nature of light, dark and color can captivate the mind, body, and soul ... most inspiring.
The process of creating images is a very important part for me, as I find my self, time over time going back to alternative processes and truly enjoying the hands on experience of making a unique print. It has not been an easy task to establish a business in a foreign country, however, I am getting everyday closer to fulfill my American Dream. I love my journey and enjoy meeting truly amazing people on my way while being able to discover some of the most amazing sceneries and places! I cannot wait to see where the journey will take me next!!
