When viewing artwork, it is interesting for me to see if I would be able to interpret and or guess what the artist meant when producing their art. I appreciate works, which can be easily deciphered, however my true interest comes when I see photographs or other forms of art that have a deeper meaning behind what is shown. When something is hidden, off center, or hard to notice, it intrigues the viewer and makes them want to know more, or to be able to dive inside the artist’s thoughts. I intend for my audience to want to explore and think further. I want them to move away, come back, and receive a completely new perception of my photographs. My work shifts emphasis between the foreground and the background. With this technique, I intend to give an everyday item a twist, which allows my audience to see that item with a new perspective.
I don’t want the viewers of my photography to have any preconceived notions, I want them to view my photos with an open mind and create their own stories progressively. I encourage them to note the space occupied by the subject. As a photographer, I have been inspired by beauty, innovation, depth, variety, and creativity. Let my photographs give you inspiration to look beyond the obvious, and create.
