I use photography as a bridge between my inner experience and the outside world. I am interested in what is revealed through the use of abstraction. I can draw new connections and understand questions in novel ways when I’m allowed to freely consider my visual experience.
The sun is central to all life on earth, its mysteries and god like presence captivate us. A giant fire ball rotating in empty space, its round surface, rainbow spectrum, and omnipresence directly related to my central question: what is awareness?
Some rules in photography can be bent, others broken to reveal something unexpected. I use constructed apertures, lens covers, and liquids to create the patterns visible in these photographs. The sun has been positioned at the center of each frame, at times it may appear obscured or distorted but always remains present.
