“You don’t take a photograph, you make it.” ― Ansel Adams
I am a digital photographer who concentrates in still life, landscapes, and portraits. When I make an image it is more than what the viewer sees. I interject my ideas of what is important through the use of light, shadows, color and clarity. Rather than presenting a factual reality, an illusion is fabricated to conjure the realms of our imagination. I create an image that may be different than what the viewer saw when they looked at a subject. I create this new reality with my camera, through the use of light, and with digital creativity using Lightroom and Photoshop.
I try to establish a link between the landscape’s reality and that imagined by its conceiver. With a subtle minimalistic approach, I create work in which a fascination with the clarity of content and an uncompromising attitude toward conceptual and minimal art can be found.
