My passion for photography began years ago in Death Valley, where the main attractions were design in landscape and abstract forms. As I traveled from 35mm slides through medium and large format film and now small and large format digital imaging, the main attractions have stayed the same.
Abstract forms are my main thrust in the studio. The images produced here are still lifes with a twist. Using a large format camera with a scanning back and a turntable which rotates the subject, I can “unwrap” the surface and contents of an object, transforming both natural and human made things into abstract (and sometimes frightening) forms.
My images are a success when the fun creating them transfers to those viewing them.
