    Artist Statement

    My work is rooted in photography, with a layer of digital wizardry on top. The "Tiny Planet" series I've been focusing on is shot digitally on a Nikon D700.

    In the field, depending on the complexity of the location & lighting, I take somewhere between 150-500 photos per shot. Then, through a process using PTGUI Pro, Lightroom & Photoshop, the images are merged into the final shot.

    What intrigues me most about these stereographic "tiny planets" is how they transform something ordinary into something extra-ordinary. From a distance, the images stand alone as abstract art, but as you move in, you start to recognize where you are and the details in the location. They truly are a world within a 'world'.

    This stuff is so cool, original and quite beautiful. I love the use of color, and how Gerrad's eye gives an entirely new dimension to each subject. I love the Infinite Lamp piece from the LACMA and the Queen Mary one is stunning.
