My work is interpretive and metaphorical, often focused on environmental and social narratives. Influenced by abstract painters, I strive to create emotive work that encourages the viewer to experience the big picture rather than focus on a specific focal point within the frame.
I set out to produce art about subjects that can communicate an idea and message. I am constantly sketching to help evaluate my vision and analyze my executions. These sketches are developed into ideas and projects.
Each project consists of multiple works, grouped around specific themes and meanings. During research and production, I often discover new areas of interest which naturally leads to the next body of work.
Philosophy: Photography is a visual interpretation of experiences, using features unique to the medium.
Theme & Style: Interpretive and metaphorical, often focused on environment, urban and social narratives.
Medium & Technique: I work with medium format, 35mm format (film and digital) and Polaroid day lab, in color and black and white. Photographs are produced on digital media, which have characteristics of cibachrome prints in longevity and color reproduction, from digital files, Polaroid transfers, negatives and chrome films.
Influences: My work is influenced by abstract art and impressionism, books and social commentaries.
