“Photography has traditionally been used for its mimetic nature - for capturing what already exists. As an artist, I use a camera like a pencil to create new environments. Using my original photographs as elements in a montage, I distort, manipulate and reinterpret shapes, colors, and light, to open new vistas. Through this process, I visually communicate the imagery and concepts I develop in my mind.”
