|As a beginning photography student, I was overwhelmed by the endless possibilities for subject material. Gradually, the random shots of buildings and people, objects and landscapes became refined. I grew increasingly aware of what appealed to me visually, enabling me to ignore all the excess information surrounding my camera lens. Portraiture became a chief interest. Photography can be used to document, but that was not what I wanted. My images, especially the portraiture, are about taking an experience and placing it within my own chosen context. Often times the composition lacks a sense of scale, demanding that it be closely scrutinized by the viewer. My tendency to crouch and get as close to my subject as possible creates intimate images where quirks and details hug the frames. The complexities of both the human figure and human emotion allow me to create an infinite variety of situations. The viewer is not supposed to recognize or empathize with the subject of my photographs, but instead question the context in which they were placed.|
