I use photography as a means to explore the effects of society on humanity. My work consists of the fundamental elements that touch upon humanity, love, passion and relationships. These include a number of different photographic series and a variety of individual pieces. I provide the audience with a concept for them to ponder in order to find the significance beyond the apparent.
My latest series focuses on the loss of the American dream and the imposed limitations of marginalized groups. The emotional power of these photographs stem from my urgent feelings concerning our current civic unrest.
My other recent work deals with our increasing culture of social isolation, anxiety and loneliness. I touch on our inherent desire to hope and our human longing for comfort and acceptance.
