Analog Black & White

Portfolio Description

There is so much beauty in the world that too often goes unnoticed. It seems the pervasive imagery we are surrounded by, while attractive to some, actually leads to a drab gray goo of sameness. The color, the saturation, the fakeness is all amped up to attract attention, but the result is just the opposite. My mind sees a type of image that is more lyrical, and focuses on ideas that some might find ugly. The path can be difficult, but an important part of reaching the destination, I want to BE an artist.

An important part of being an artist is sharing work with others. I believe in the power of the print, and so all of these images are actual, original prints that I carefully crafted myself. Images conceived in my mind’s eye, captured on real celluloid film and printed as traditional silver gelatin prints. Making these prints is a time honored tradition, and while it sounds cliche, they are meant to be seen in “real” life. While the end result is a print you can hold in your hand, the journey is perhaps just as interesting. Imagining amazing locations with great models and interesting props, and then executing that vision is a big part of the struggle.

My limited edition silver gelatin prints are available for sale.
