Shaking off the shackles of ambivalence, stumbling blindly forward: my photographs deconstruct a subversive approach to fragmentary composites reflecting autobiographically on the performance of the photographic medium itself a mediated edification of ruptured reified societal structures to which it adheres albeit unwillingly.
Long before I learned about cameras, my life with photography began as a cacophony of shadow and sound as I lay watching rays of light glide across the darkening gloom.
When I was eleven years old, legendary photojournalist Powell Krueger invited all the neighborhood kids into the darkroom to learn how to develop and print black and white negatives. At fifteen I believed I was an artist and wanted to study photography, but it was a dream deferred. For the past fifty years I have been teaching myself photography and hope to enjoy another twenty-five years practicing what I have learned.
