Art and Editorial photography exploring line, structure, and weirdness.
Everything is interesting. Everything inspires a story. What happened here? What will happen next? What is this person thinking? I imagine those stories when I’m creating photographs.
At the core of each of my works is a visual drama, perhaps a suspension of time and energy, an unusual arrangement of lines and curves, or a portrayal of a compelling character.
I hope my work will inspire viewers to imagine their own stories.
