My work explores the psychology of visual interpretation from two near-death experiences. I strive to challenge the viewer's perception of photographic images, and how individuals synthesize photography and art, to bring a deeper experience observing their environment.  Often abstract, the photographs are  a record of the world around me as it is, requiring thought and reflection intertwining realism and metaphoric representation as a means to create dialogue from the images.

 

I am fascinated with the convergence of art and technology, especially with respect to photography and attempt to meld the two into a visual storyline expressed by the viewer, rather than by me, "A picture is worth a thousand words."  In six of the Collections the photographs are created in-camera and do not employ special software filters to achieve a specific image effect.

 

During the last 19 years I have produced the following Collections:

• Pictorial Pets, 2020 - New Collection in Development for Children's Picture Books

• People Around Us, 2015 - 2016

• Architectural Moonscapes, 2013 - Present

• Individual Personae, 2013 – 2014

Abstract Thoughts, 2011 - 2012 - Present

Natural Surroundings, 2011 - 2012 - Present

Street Photography, 2011 - Present

• Photo Anagram Images, 2008 - 2010

• Unaltered State of Reality, 2008 - 2010

• Liquid Flowers Series, 2001 - 2007

 

My interest integrating art and technology continues to expand from the photography app, BeMUZE, created in 2011, to the recent Architectural Moonscapes Collection that combines architectural photography with digital software image composing.
