Good day to everyone!
This post will have some of my more personal work in it…I hate to ruin it with my giant stamp but you just can’t be too careful these days.
I categorize these images as fine art, not because I think they’re so fine but because I simply don’t know what other category best suits them except “weird photos” which is not a real category…
As you look at these images, please keep in mind that in one way or another, each of these images expresses something about myself, my thoughts, and my deepest darkest secrets. The best of me and the worst of me are represented in these photographs.
These are some of my favorites from different projects….I will briefly talk about each one, but please decide for yourself what you feel about them. Whether they bother you or irritate you, stir something in you, or you hate them; it is alright. Just feel anything. 🙂
“Drip, Boil and Bubble”
This image to me is about confusion, chaos and all the beautiful things that make no sense but come together in an inexplicable warmth.
I will leave it to you to try to figure out what the hell this is a picture of…I felt so cold when I should have been warmest.
Reflect on this: Fuck you. Take it however you want.
All that glitters is gold. Actually, it rarely ever is gold….just a shiny distraction from reality.
When I take photographs like these, I usually feel at most relaxed, my most comfortable. I am never worried about the opinion of others, their judgement, or whether they can see my vision. That, to me is what truly makes this my “fine art” – because it really is so unrefined in its own way, which makes it truly mine. This is me at my happiest, Nikon in hand and only the physical world requiring my attention.
There are no models to move or position, no makeup to do, no images that are interesting because some beautiful human is in them.
These images made me think about deep things – from the time I clicked the shutter through selecting them and editing them until I finally watermarked them. I thought of art, abstract beauty, how deceiving something can look if you need it to, and how simply beautiful the most ordinary objects can be when the right eyes fall upon them.
