More than a simply photographer, I consider myself a portrait artist. My art is shot digitally, and is printed on “archival paper”. It is also printed on “c-print paper”, and is hand colored with oil paints. All of my senses, especially my eyes, seek incessantly to recreate past eras embellished with romanticism.
In my artwork the past is just the basis for conjuring a world of elegance, romance and glamour. The personality of the subjects comes through the careful use of light, color and atmosphere. I seek to impart a unique stamp to each piece, making sure all elements work in perfect harmony as a whole. Photography transport us to very personal worlds. An image presents an inner quality of the subject, which may be on a conscious level. I have a strong emotional bond to all that I do and inevitably I am lead by my feelings rather than by my rational mind, even though the reality of the world forces us to deal with very complex situations.
