Surreal Imagery inspired by Man Ray. To make us dream of other
worlds existing within and beyond the boundaries of imagination.
Always aware of how photographing becomes a magical act..the appearance and the changes, that I as a photographer
can construct, I love photographing because of this moment of change. Visually aware that the concept is one thing and
alchemy process another. That the surprise element is ever present whether from a gesture, or an emotion from a model,
the light from a source, or the added element of the digital darkroom. I like the surprise of what becomes. My favorite
artists are ManRay and Matisse, and each time I view a work of either, it is savored memory, and again a striking newness
that moves me.
Enclosed are Photographic Images which I would like incorporated into a show.
The series I have photographed in different mediums and I have digitally enhanced them to look deconstructed and
solarized. I chose not to solarize every image I take but feel that the ones that I do alter are transformed to another
dimensionality. They stand as images on their own without added digital work, but as Man Ray, and other surrealists I love
the aesthetic freedom. The over-process and defective development of light and dark giving an otherworldly vision.
Man Ray’s muse lends itself to my inspiration of Man Ray and Lee Miller’s creative cycle. I hope to honor them.
I like the way the deconstructive process creates a new meaning to my images, and I hope the viewer gets the sense of
anticipation, that anything can happen in this world of unbound realities.
Nothing's perfect and time will never be the same, and so I change, and so do my images, altering them to the transition
between the surreal and the moment. I focus on beauty, in art and nature as if one. The line of a body is as important as
the ghostly movement of tulips in shade.
