“A photographic portrait promises to delay or deny our mortality, magically freezing a moment in time. My work takes that moment and peels back the curtain, exposing thoughts, fears and dreams. Its exaggerated theatricality demands your attention. Tales are told through the eyes and the orientation of head and body. Subtle changes in color and light create an atmosphere from another time and place.
“I prefer to shoot my photographs simply, with basic studio lighting. These digital images form the skeleton of my new reality. Light, shadow and colors are manipulated to set the stage. Layered textures combine with my still life and landscape photos, antique documents, images from NASA and myriad other objects conjured for the occasion.
“My goal is a contemporary portrait with references to painting, history and environment.”
