Conceptual Conceptual photography.
Each of these pieces stands on its own. Each one represents a single idea or concept often inspired by a song, film, or book. I like attempting to represent ideas visually, because forcing what is generally expressed through words into the more abstract realm of visualization gives them a new dimension. Language, for all its follies, is a realitively concrete form of expression. Each word has its assigned meaning, connotations may vary and interpretation plays a role, as with any other art form, but that place where interpretations converge is larger and easier to pinpoint. Images are far more open, they are more purely perceptual. The eyes take in what is before them and associate what they see instinctually. The original idea goes through a sort of metamorphosis, revealing layers of meaning words could never uncover.
