My Close-up photographs invite each viewer to revel in details often overlooked in photography and in some cases, impossible to see with the naked eye. I want to draw the viewer into an unknown world, simultaneously familiar and exotic; so realistic it borders on abstraction.
When framed, and thus closed off to the outside world, these images tend to take on a new life, almost becoming portals to another world. Textures, color, and shape dominate and play off each other to allow the viewer to complete their own reality within the context of the given image. These close-up photographs are often used in the home as points of contemplation and meditation. Thank you, I hope you enjoy!
