This series is an exploration of the real and not so real, manipulation and pure. Is it more real for me to photograph my drawing objects than to draw on my photographs. In place of animation I chose very dynamic situations to allow the viewer to participate in the mayhem.

I enjoy photographing the character of Youngstown through its old buildings. With these images, I wanted to explore the Youngstown that once was. I choose these buildings and signs because of the contrast between the bright colors and the effects of aging and abandonment.

The idea of a Pedrograph comes from an unconscious neccesity to create imagery. This series investigates the emptiness of meaning in a subject. The absence of a defined subject matter is replaced with emtiness. This emptiness examines the visual language of imagery in which the viewer brings meaning to recognize forms. The empty Pedrographs are an attempt to deconstruct, understand and rebuild this visual language.
