Photography empowers me to explore fragments of life, abstract it and invent clearer understandings of its intent. My goal as a photographer is to excite the visual senses of the viewer and cause a momentary cessation in life while drawing from their inner emotions and intellect renewed feelings and thoughts. My images are imagined through my desire to deconstruct my surroundings. I look at the grandeur and transcend its absolute state by abstracting portions of the whole. Taking some of the extraneous surroundings away, I imagine the consciousness of the creator; I look at the interplay of lines and movement. I enter the mind of the “architect” as lines are drawn and textures created that make up the whole. I am inspried to seek simplicity.
