“Photography is not just for capturing an image:
it is for opening your imagination and creativity.”
My abstract work takes a form that challenges accepted ideas of what photographs should look like. The title of my abstract work is called: "Photo Genesis" - The manipulation of the original photo negative into an abstract form. Instead of just capturing an image, I enhance and manipulate the image and let the individual do a self-exploration of what it “is” and how it was created. What it “is”, is not what is essential to me. By use of color, shapes and suggested textures I change what the original photographic image was. My whole purpose is to let the imagination go wild and to spur the individual captivated by an image to ask, “What is that and how does he do it?” "Photography is not just for capturing an image: it is for opening your imagination and creativity."
