About Me

And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.
~Friedrich Nietzsche

For me the purpose of life, the purpose of my imagery, is to compel others to pause. Using photographic mediums digital, film and wet plate collodion I work to create images that will inspire emotion. To tell a story using only a few seconds out of life. I hope that work moves those who see it to stop for a second and ponder. Maybe a memory or a song, some words, a time or place. This is what it does for me. This is what all art that moves me does for me.

I love to shoot with very loose concepts. My editing style or aesthetic is inspired by the work itself, as well as my current mood, and feeling. I attempt to let every image tell its own story, and help to create the feminine emotion that I find comforting to my soul, and hopefully others. My themes tend to be based on the beauty and darkness of feminine form. With a certain melancholy or macabre undertone.
