Photography, it is light and form. The transformation of an object to image is more about creating than documenting. I see the world differently through the lens. Colors are more vibrant, shapes become almost animated, I can't explain it, but it happens. Recently, I have included a new layer to my work--seeing in the abstract--, but in doing so, NEVER, NEVER losing what I think is one of the most important aspects of art, and that is beauty.
I strive to remove the lines that the eye does not see, but so easily appear on canvas- to create images with bold composition and elegant lighting. To create by using color, light and form to the context and beauty of the photograph-almost sculpture. For some series of photos I use the technique of handpainting and computer graphics to achieve various results.
I studied at the New School for Social Research and Parsons School of Design. I divide my work-time between New York City, and Dutchess County, with a studio in Dutchess County, New York. I work with 35mm digital Nikon, 2 ¼ Hasselblad, and 4x5 Sinar.
