BIOGRAPHY
My photos, which are often shot in a somewhat “documentary” style, are of my microcosm here in rural Wisconsin. The goal of my photographs is to take snapshots from my small corner of the world and transform them into mysterious photo plays that gets the viewer to ask questions either internally or about the actual image itself. I want the image to create a mystery, each one filled with its own subtle clues and symbolic gestures. Every image varies in meaning, some are representative of something important in my life or the life of someone in the actual photograph, or they may have no meaning what so ever, but that is not what is important, what is important is what you the viewer takes from my images, if you are able to take anything meaningful from one of my images (a feeling, a memory, a personal statement) then I have succeeded in what I set out to do and I would so love to hear what you think.
