I am a Canadian photographer and Pop Surrealist with a background in editorial photography. For me, photography is intended not to produce an esthetic that echoes current beauty standards, but to evoke and wrest feelings of shame, anger, shock and empathy from the observer so as to inspire insight into the human condition.
I have always felt that my experience as a documentary photographer complements my conceptual photography — they inform each other technically and creatively. From my more candid work, I have learned that spontaneity and a lack of control are sources of inspiration. This has inspired trust in my instincts to nurture the most fleeting of concepts.
