About me
When I first picked up a camera, I started to see things differently. I began to notice and appreciate the visual beauty that surrounds me in a way that I never had before, and this mindfulness seems to be ever-increasing. Photography has given me a whole new perspective on the world and allows me to capture these moments of realization.

I began capturing these moments through the study of landscapes and the natural world. I feel as though there is so much unequivocal beauty that is being overlooked in our world. It deserves admiration. Awed along the way, I have traveled the New England area, as well as parts of California, accompanied by the perpetual sound of the camera’s shutter. Through these studies though, my objective hasn’t changed, but evolved.

While maintaining my love for the landscape, I later became interested in the nude figure. Like Edward Weston, I am also inspired by the infinite combination of lines which are present with every move. Furthermore, I became curious about the integration of the figure with the landscape and began studies in relationship to this idea. These works are not an attempt at portraiture, which is why the figure’s face is rarely shown. In many cases, I want the figure to become part of the landscape, evoking a visceral connection between the body and nature. This is achieved by depicting the similarities in the contours of the figure and the landscape, while showing the contrast between the harshness of nature and the delicateness of the nude body. At times, this presents itself in a surreal manner.

I consider my images most successful when they do convey surreal qualities as well as a great sense of spatial depth. Whether a landscape or the integration of the nude body with nature, I see my images as less of a photograph and more of a window into my thoughts, dreams, and experiences.
