What artist doesn’t loathe writing an artist statement?  Because, simply put, I create photographic art that I like to look at. I like simple compositions, clean lines, but with details that you can pour over endlessly.  I like photographs that are visually striking, but I also like photographs that tell a story, and they don’t have to do both. I like photographs that have a sense of polish and a calculated, deliberate approach.  Thus, that’s the kind of art that I make. When I first began experimenting with the photographic arts I don’t think I considered that I would develop an individual style that would come to encapsulate my body of work. This is the case with every artist, naturally, but the point at which you recognize this about your own work seems to be an inflection point, where you truly begin to develop and cultivate a feeling of congruency in everything that you do, regardless of the subject.  The risk, of course, is not being able to recognize if you have bad taste.  And then you wind up with an entire portfolio of bullshit that nobody really likes but you. I hope that’s not the case, but if it is, at least I have two decades of bullshit that I like to look at.

It does seem that a few people other than myself appreciate what I do. Or they’re just afflicted with the same bad taste as I:
