My fascination has always been in taking the tool of the Impressionists and early compositional photographers and moving the photograph into the realm of 'true art'. Photography being a fledgling form whose roots do not go as far back as the Chauvet Caves.
Working outdoors with available light, I capture the visual juxtaposition of the shadows that play within a compositional 'color' palette. Dimensionality or lack thereof is a product of this interplay. Dimension and shadow increase during the assembly process taking my 2 dimensional compositions and adding depth. Now light & shadow play a new role in creating a 3 dimensional finished work. The assembly rests on a wall, which is now also part of the paradigm.
I work with both a Nikon SLR Digital and an iPhone.
