As a photographer, I'm interested in sharing new ways to see common imagery that surrounds us while communicating an aesthetic composed of unique ingredients.
While varying in subject matter, the photos presented are geared toward engaging the viewer through the suspension of representation, connotation, external references, expectations and other forms of mental noise that prevent the observer from seeing the world with new eyes.
I'd like to think of these photos as experiments in aesthetics requiring participants. Success hinges upon silently experiencing the image rather than identifying, judging or thinking it over. Important elements often include the golden ratio, the absence of an obvious subject, repetition, visual dialogue, juxtaposition and mystery.
Ultimately, I hope my ongoing hunt for new visual experiences through photography can be shared with others. So I invite you to join me in the venture and enjoy.
About me: I grew up in Lenoir, a town in the foothills of North Carolina. Over the past 22 years I've been shooting in various states, primarily in the southeast and northwest regions of the country. I've had multiple shows in the southeast. My work as been featured in Jezebel magazine and can be viewed on Artist-A-Day, an online art gallery. I currently work as a licensed psychotherapist and live outside of Seattle, Washington. I like think of myself as beginner photographer, with the hope that viewers will see my pictures with "beginner" eyes.
