Photography

Artist's Statement

I see my photography as a way of telling a story. As a film major, I learned to tell a story over the length of a movie; as a photographer, I find myself trying to tell a story in one single frame. My intent is to capture a special moment in time that will conjure up a lifetime story. I love the old, the rusty, and the decay whether they be objects, landscapes or buildings. My goal is to question and emphasize the legend deep within them. I create moods by use of color, or lack thereof it, to emphasis to an object and separate it from the background. By manipulating depth of field, focusing on the subject and blurring the background, I impose a new focal point suggesting a new meaning to the scene.

I see my work as a tool for providing the viewer with information, visually and emotionally, so they can fill in the "before and after" of that captured moment in time, creating their own stories behind the images.
