Artist Statment

We look at the world and see what we have learned to believe is there. We have been conditioned to expect…. but, as photographers, we must learn to relax our beliefs.” – Aaron Siskind

In my life, I have explored several artistic directions: drawing, painting, ceramics, music, theater, graphic design (motion graphics), cgi, and visual effects as a multimedia producer. The most significant visual medium that I have concentrated on in the last fifteen years is photography. Photography allows me to include a personal relationship into the artistic event. Unique personality traits are revealed as I impose a closeness between the subject and camera. My photographs provide a framework for the viewer to experience the metaphor I have guided them to perceive. These metaphors may be suggested at the critical photographic moment or with words, phrases, and sentences as well as specifically color toned areas. To the viewer looking at these photographs, extraneous emotion may be suggested. The words and phrases inscribed may often be verbal contradictions to the perceived interpretation of the actual photographic event. They are chosen to not only evoke a response from the viewer, but questions. I leave it up to the viewer’s discretion to answer these questions.
