“Life is a hallucinatory wish.” - Sigmund Freud
The nature of a photograph simultaneously freezes and extends a single moment indefinitely. I feel that in documenting this crystallized moment one must have an acute awareness of the immediate surroundings. A photographic opportunity often reveals itself to me as if I were destined to be at that exact point in time. My photographs strive to project an isolated instant of hyper consciousness.
The camera serves as an extension of my eye, my aesthetic and, in turn, my life experiences. My photographs categorize sensations and expose human fragility. They are often dark-humored visual metaphors that depict the absurdity surrounding everyday life. The subject matter is diverse and sometimes questions the notion of beauty. My photographs document what makes me feel most alive.
