Digital Prints; 13×19
Series of 15

These utterly minimalist portraits shun all context other than the physical body of the subject and create a space that allows for the body to be laid out for inspection by the viewing audience. Whether obstructed or not, the gaze suggests a moment caught off guard, a moment in which defenses were lowered either willingly or by chance at the very time of exposure. Much about a college-aged man is judged based on his self-representation of his own masculinity, including the (over important) issue of sexuality. What do you perceive about the people laid out for your view?

“Urging the viewer to recognize processes of perception and recognition in the midst of their occurrences, the abstracted shapes and forms within the work encourage a personal, continuous, visual engagement that pushes beyond our normal limits of seeing. Obscure textures and lines undulating alongside deep, black voids position us within an indefinable space, asking us to consider perceptual experience beyond conventional understanding to a realm past the point of our own comfort and familiarity.”

These are part of a series I’m working on that will have 15-20 images in total. In it I’ve been trying to take a more playful look at the interaction between nature and man/man-made.

Work in progress series

This series is about the relationship between nature and civilization. I am trying to convey that one side cannot thrive without some kind of negative to the other. I want to show this relationship in a raw subtle way that draws the viewer to contemplate the photos and meanings behind them.
