I am a photographer, painter and art educator. My recent photographic work has me de-saturating color or converting color images to subtle sepia-toned compositions. Often when I do this I find that many photos that appeared to be all about color are actually stronger visual statements after I remove some or all color. This alteration makes the lighting more dramatic and the textures more engaged in the narrative.
I really have no one favorite subject category; I enjoy captures wherever I am and whatever surrounds me, but I do have a preference for compositions that are structured with and defined by simple geometric and/or irregular shapes.That is probably the common denominator in my compositions.
I love that photographic art enables me to create quiet mysteries within a rectangle.
