PHOTOGRAPHY

My photographs tend to reflect a deliberate intention to play visual games. These games are derived from the fact that while the subject of a photograph is in every way a kinetic and three-dimensional phenomenon, the photographic image itself is always a frozen and edited two-dimensional interpretation of that experience. My approach to making photographs embodies an on-going experiment in creating strong visual compositions within the preimposed rectangular format of the camera aperture. I am an opportunist. While I seldom manipulate the actual objects in a scene, I am constantly searching for intriguing ways to visually control and present how that information is first captured and then transformed by the powerful but limited medium of photography.
