My work explores the psychology of visual interpretation. 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 us 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."  Six of the nine Collections the photographs are created in-camera and do not employ special software filters to achieve a specific image effect except for standard image processing; People Around Us, Architectural Moonscapes and the Liquid Flowers Collections are the three exceptions.

 

During the last 16 years I have produced nine Collections:

   • People Around Us, 2015 - 2016

   • Architectural Moonscapes, 2013 - 2015

   • How Others See Us, 2013 – 2014

   • Abstract Realities, 2011 - 2012

   • Natural Surroundings, 2011 - 2012

   • Traditional Visions, 2011 - 2012

   • 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, I created  in 2011, to the recent Architectural Moonscapes Collection that combines architectural photography with digital software composing.
