Artist StatementI am extremely lucky to get to do what i do! I meet amazing people, and bear witness to things i never imagined i would see in this life. Hopefully i am creating something in the process, that will outlive us all.... Old school photography here.... "ANALOG" meaning film based photography. Through modifying chemical processes, lighting technique, and manipulating the medium of film, i am able to create these color pallets. I hand develope all of my film,and print every image by myself. the entire process keeps my interest in the darkroom,and not on the desktop. pure photography,,,,,viva la darkroom!
