“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” - Thomas Merton
This quote defines what happens when I look through my camera. Through photography, I have found who I am. I have found inspiration in countless areas; I have found beauty in subtle and obscure places. Finding myself has allowed me to completely lose myself.
I find myself happiest creating new worlds inspired by old worlds. History, mythology, literature, religion-- these are the places that make my soul glow. I often use myself as the subject and the digital world of photography as my paintbrush, exploring the dream worlds I create. Each day opens up new possibilities and new worlds to create. Each morning I awake, ready to take on the challenge.
