About his work: “My work demands of me to be spontaneous, to allow mistakes and photographic accidents in order to stimulate my creative process. The work celebrates women as unique, sexy, beautiful, strong, mysterious, unpredictable, and free human beings. The creation of new work comes from never being fully satisfied. There are new
boundaries to push, new accidents that have yet to occur. No matter the subject, my work lives in the moment. It is obvious that the work is created in a moment before
it is presented. In that moment, it is most important to not only create the work but to discover it. Most of my work is not conceptual, it is impulsive. It is free.”
