Artist Statement

I look at my technique as a distinctly two step process. The shooting is a trial and error search for elegant composition and the later digital manipulation is adding a creative twist. The steps seem especially distinct to me with this series. The infrared converted cameras I use have some visual light sensitivity in the deep red and though some esoteric image processing I’m able to manipulate the color to make art that feels original and expresses an added original dimension to the work. I'm just "moving the sliders" until it feels right. I suspect that there is some connection to a dream state, but who knows?
