This work is for everyone. My method is a relationship that rotates between chance and Intention.
Using only existing lighting and zero staging is essential…
Chance equals anything I see; any place or space minus intent that instills a feeling in my heart. Then with excitement I capture that image and moment with a photograph.
Intention equals creating new meaning to otherwise mundane, assorted images. Just things we see, images on earth that we pay zero attention to. With altering the view point of that moment, a new image is captured. Then deciding where to place the image in space on paper, I have created something new. With intention I have created Art.
Wake up… Open your eyes… Now is my time to share all the beauty that revolves around us…
Man – I know all is Art
