My photographs are almost always self-portraits, which has created a unique bond between me and the machine with which I will eventually make art. The camera becomes not just a tool, but a source to which I show myself completely with no inhibitions. In my work, my main concern is my physical appearance and its relationship to interior emotion (the outward vs. the inward). It is my hope that I communicate emotion through images of my body and, in turn, create a dialogue between me and my audience. It is my goal to create photographs that can communicate feeling without a needed explanation in words, which would please my favorite artist, Jackson Pollock, who once said, “Put up and shut up.” With Pollock’s sentiment in mind, I will leave any further explanation to my photographs.
