I can't explain how I took this photograph.
I'm not being coy or evasive. The details are lost to my memory because my creative process relies on the simplest possible tools—a flashlight, simple point-and-shoot camera, perhaps some string and/or paper—and constant experimentation.
Every now and then the Universe conspires to reveal its inherent beauty. Thus, this image is more about tenacity than artistic craft.
It represents persistence, being open-minded, and paying attention. Those are my skills, and the good news is that they are available to you... and everyone else, too.
About my images...
My photographs capture very simple materials interacting with equally simple light sources (think: a $4 flashlight) to produce what I hope you agree is startling beauty and complexity. My goal is to remind us both that beauty and complexity is all around us; we will realize this if we only slow down and pay attention.
I use a process called dye sublimation to infuse these images into a sheet of aluminum; the image actually becomes one with the metal. The result is striking. The colors pop in an extraordinary manner on the high gloss surface. None of these photographs require additional framing. The metal sheets float slightly away from the wall, thanks to a metal frame behind the actual image.
Every one of my prints is created to order, and I can produce many different sizes according to your preferences. Please contact me for pricing inquiries and other questions.
