I photograph through a vision of emotion and movement to capture a moment in time where light stands still.
Limited only by my imagination, I am inspired by rock music in pure darkness and isolation where my mind is free from distractions - this enables me to visualize abstract colors and movement that I am compelled to capture with my camera.
I use no commercial filters or gels attached to my lens and design my colors and forms by building sculptures from glass and acrylic. I then illuminate the sculpture in a pitch-black room and photograph using motion. The sculptures are strictly a tool to achieve the colors and textures I want and no part of the sculpture is visible in the photograph – after the shoot the sculpture is dismantled.
The resulting images are true photographs that are in no way altered, enhanced, cropped, or created in the computer or with Photoshop - this is not computer art. The results you see are typically one shot, or exposure in nature, and are 100% photographs and my imagination - my art, my love.
