I love the inherent constraints photography imposes on me. The convenience and mobility of the camera enable me to create works of art as I experience them. The limitations imposed by the viewfinder – as well as those by light, lens and frame – draw the creativity out of me, as I am forced to work inside of the box in order to share my perspective with others. I work with a mix of photographic media likening it to how some artists choose pastels or oils or pen and ink for certain works. Film, digital, Polaroid and Polaroid emulsion transfers each offer something unique when I capture an image and frequently only one of these tools is perfect for the subject.
