My photographs are traditional in the sense that they originate in a photographic process that uses a camera to capture highly detailed images. I am contemporary in my use of Adobe® Photoshop® software to create the results I am looking for. The software allows me to add that “extra edge”–an expanded realization of an idea. Their subject matter relies on humor, and have references to language, art history and the American culture, in order to round out my artistic vision. These particular images have been influenced by some of my photo history heroes!
