Project info

I create still life photographs of blown out tires that I find along the highway of my hometown in Las Vegas, Nevada. I aim to make pictures of tires in a fresh and engaging manner that encourages people to experience an ordinary object from a new perspective. The tires I photograph bear a striking resemblance to human gesture, body language, and organic matter, and are reminiscent of artistic sculpture. These are compelling characteristics that I showcase through the arrangement and lighting of my work. Viewing my photographs provides a unique visual experience, and thinking about the similarities that the tires share with human beings creates pause for reflection. My images can be appreciated simply for the way they look, or for their deeper connection with humanity.
