My current portfolio seeks to spotlight overlooked urban buildings, to showcase details of these edifices. I hope to show dynamic movement and a sense of shifting light in the sights and scenes of my world, dramatically expressed through sharp architectural forms, contrasting dark and light, as I offer each locale a life of its own. Offering a close, almost confrontational view, my work endeavors to vividly envelope the senses, inviting the viewer to re-think the images of the world as my sense sees it, encouraging the viewer to enter this environment and experience my world for themselves.
