I have several ongoing projects. One is the Story of the Ghost in which I am posing models as ghosts to tell phantasmagorical stories through imagry. Another theme of mine is abandoned places, and I have several locations in which I love to shoot. I am also engaged in a Tarot card project as well as a biblical project which poses biblical stories in modern sensory styles. I am actively seeking to fulfill the 7 deadly sins on film.
My exhibit, Abandoned Souls - Abandoned Spaces: a photo essay on the former mental health system of Massachusetts is no longer on display
The exhibit was shot in abandoned asylums across the state and recreates the patient experience visually. A portion of all procedes from the show benefits the Northeast Independant Living Project which strives to help able minded individuals live fulfilling lives outside of institutions.
I live in Northern Massachusetts and I am all about TFCD. Dont be afraid to appraoch me with any ideas you'd like to see on film (well even though I work mainly in digital). Photography is more about art to me than it is just fashion. Don't get me wrong, I will shoot fashion as well. My aim is to try every genre and avenue of photographic expression. I'm very down to earth, so drop me a line, say hi, tell me what your ideas are.
