My fine art photography portfolio is rooted in concepts I find thought provoking and emotionally engaging. Every category in this portfolio is organized within the context of the surrounding images found within.

About My Photography Collections
I’m interested in making sense of the world that surrounds us and use photography to express the unknown.
Photography, unlike any other medium, empowers the blending of the real and the unreal. Perhaps this is why taking pictures has become a fundamental part of who I am today. My photography deals with a wide variety of concepts ranging from aesthetic beauty in light patterns to portraits about the human condition. Most of the fine-art image series created between 2008 and 2014 dealt with psychological feelings of loss, nostalgia, and hope for beauty in this impossible existence we pretend is so normal. Recently my fine-art image series have turned out to be mostly philosophical in nature, rooted in ancient concepts such as the microcosm and macrocosm, dualism, and the trinity. To illustrate these principles I’ve been researching mystery religions, secret societies, and the esoteric knowledge that’s been carried forth into our Western society at large.
It’s been my personal approach to expand the potential of what an image can become. I think in contextual terms, and most of the work in my fine-art portfolio only makes sense when viewed in relationship to the surrounding images.
