My photography examines everyday reality from a slightly different perspective. Not content with simply taking photographs of beautiful things, I personally find photography more challenging and rewarding by transforming the ordinary or overlooked into unique, graphic and somewhat abstract compositions. My photographs strive to reduce each scene to its simplest form by eliminating distracting elements while providing a strong emphasis on light and shadow. For me, photography is a continual process of learning to view things in an entirely different and exciting way. Through my images I strive to introduce people to a new and unique way of viewing their everyday world – one that they may have never considered or noticed in the past.
