After a 20+ year career in documentary as a location sound recordist, who always carried a camera, I went to art school in 2017 and majored in photography. It was a study, practice and experiment with cameras that continues today as a conscious play with objects, subjects and their spatial abstractions in relation to light.
Let's leave it to the philosophers to speculate on photography’s future but there is no doubt to its effect on society and culture since the medium was first fixed on to a substrate in 1826. Today, there are so many genres in photography and platforms on which to post that I believe it is easy to get lost in the redundancy.
My hope with this website, its albums and far too many photograhs, is to display a metaphysical aesthetic in between motion and still, to copy what was there and then, with an intent to expose photography as art, politics, and chance.
