Fine Art Photography
These images begin with a photograph, an untouched surface of possibility. It is then attacked with bleach, which quickly eats away at the pristine surface, exposing the possibilities within the photograph. There is a new reality that awaits my hand; I draw into the destroyed photograph, renewing and altering the photographic reality. The final product is no longer about the purity of a photograph or the labor-intensive drawing; it is the equilibrium of the two and the totality of the process that has no equal. They become a singular entity that has its own existence and the final image is the only thing that is real.
