Abstract + expression + photography

Traditionally, photography is a tool of objectivity. It depicts its subject as it really appears, It replicates its subject true to its form. Historically, a picture should diligently report the thing of which it is a picture. In art history terms, it is realism.

But I make pictures to understand my feelings. My pictures are physical projections of my emotions. They are a visual representation of what I’m feeling. To better manage my own emotions, I attribute them to my subjects.

I abstract my original subject. I strip it of its recognizable form. I reduce it to lines, shapes and colors. Then I mold it fit my what I’m feeling.

I project my own meaning within my camera’s frame.
