My Approach to Photography.
"I paint ideas, not things. I paint primarily because I have something to say ..."
I want to photograph ideas. Models, objects and settings convey ideas. They are not isolated entities. They have been placed in an image to achieve a harmonious whole which is a visual recreation of an idea.
"...and since the gift of eloquent language has been denied me, I use painting."
-George Frederick Watts.
I use photography.
I am influenced by Arthur Albert Allen, Diane Arbus, Albert Cheney Johnston, Robert Mapplethorpe, Helmut Newton and Man Ray.
