I'm moving rapidly in some yet to be defined direction. I don't know really what it is or what it should be called, but it's what appeals to me.
Light is the source. Light is the author. Light is the sculptor. This is an endeavor in the applied physics of light to produce an image-poem.
Understand that I'm not interested in reality. I don't want to capture or create an image that I could see simply by walking to the beach on a summer day. I have no interest in reality. Reality is where wars are fought, where people succumb to illness, where beauty ultimately gives way to decay. And so I have no interest in pursuing reality.
Photography, for me, is about fantasy and everything I do, from lighting to post processing, is intended to create an image that twists reality in subtle ways - not so much that we lose the connection with the source and enter the realm of talking dragons and rainbow unicorns, but also not so mundane that it doesn't irritate the purists who believe beauty must look one way or another to deserve validation. If my photography pleases everyone, I have failed.
"It never got weird enough for me." - Hunter S. Thompson
"I am jealous of the portrait you have painted of me. Why should it keep what I must lose? Every moment that passes takes something from me and gives something to it. Oh, if it were only the other way! If the picture could change, and I could be always what I am now!" - Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray
"Baby, you're the ginchiest." - Edd Byrnes and Connie Stevens, Kookie, Kookie, Lend me your comb
