Simple Complicated

The photographs presented are a representation of continuing bodies of work I consider paintings or drawings manifested in photographic form.  While shot digitally on my Leica or Canon, the images are all produced in a camera with no Photoshop retouching. I manipulate reality through long exposures, “painting” with the camera, using found forms and/or physically creating shapes of light with the camera to create the image. 

Often using mundane moments of the day and presenting them in a way the viewer may never have seen or considered to be beautiful.  I am making the simple visual, making the simple energetic, making the simple peaceful, making the simple bold, making the simple calm, making the simple important – making the simple complicated.
