As diverse as my images are in location, they share a common bond with the landscape painters of the Hudson River School. Though much of my work is influenced by that idealistic period, I seek places to photograph that evoke a feeling of loneliness and frequently places that have seen change. Despite the darkness and mystery that many images hold, each has an element of light and hope.
Growing up in a family that was filled with irrational minds, I revisit much of my past in these images. They are memories that are often unpleasant and at times sad, memories of a time when I felt trapped in situations impossible to change. Everyone has experienced loss and has had difficult moments that they relive from time to time. It is my hope that my images tap into that part of the human psyche that invites thought and contemplation.
