Mixed Media

Stranger than Fiction

We don't see objects as they are, but rather we perceive the light that bounces from them. I believe film to be the second purest recording of this light, the first being the eye. I prefer film photography as my creative medium because it's limited to reality. I can distort reality within the medium by exposing the same strip of film to light as many times as I please (multiple exposures), but this doesn't change the fact that everything captured on film exists outside of my head; each photograph contains an undeniable truth about the physical world we share. My creativity and technical skill thrives through the combination, calculation and capturing of light onto film. I hope my rendition of our shared reality can acquaint you with a perspective familiar, yet otherwise unknown.
