Lights, Color, Action...praying to the photographic gods
Photographing your work to get an accurate representation is challenging. Its as if the planets must be aligned and the lighting must be just right to capture the true essence of your work. Yikes. Thats alot to ask for. Needless to say, I've been challenged today with my photographic work. So, please keep in mind when I share my latest pieces, the photography isn't world class...
My newest style could be called primitive, distressed, earthy......with a splash of color. I don't know really how to best describe it but it has an edge to it. I'd also say that my newest work is about our own duality and religious rituals. . I guess I'd call it a "Line of work" and I've named it Saint and Sinner. We all have both of these qualities within our personalities but its which trait that is strongest that gives us our personalities. I like to think of most of us as "Saints"........we are good people but we have our moments of doing naughty things ....the "Sinner" side of us all. I am really into human behavior and certain religious rituals particularly buddhist. So, here is a glimpse into what is going on inside my head
Look for more of my Saint & Sinner work on my website....soon. I have to be remotely happy with the images before I'll put them up :)
