Credit Notes

Photography has always been a narcissistic endeavor.

At the age of six I fell in love with the art, but what I truly fell for was the way I see the world’s beauty. While in the beginning I was driven to share my vision as a gift to others, I now accept my vision will never be shared, only constantly reinvented. Today, I remember that sunny afternoon on my parent’s patio not as a beginning or an epiphany, but as a cue to the greater purpose I have not yet fully identified.

Can you fall in love through the lens of a camera, or feel the heat of passion on the page of a magazine? Photography is more than a captured moment; it’s captured emotion not so much a stolen soul, but a glimpse behind the eyes of the model; a voyeuristic peak into their experience. This is why the glossy feel of a print can offer the most tactile satisfaction. Why the sound of a shutter can induce a shared experience, and why the smell of developer triggers an involuntary memory in the tradition of French philosopher Marcel Proust. A photograph is a dream, a world that exists, but cannot be owned; not even by the photographer. It exists as a collective sensory experience, that’s neither tangible nor expressible. A photograph is something you must know and accept, while desperately trying to forget, in a vain attempt to continue your more grounded reality.

Photography is insight, an image is an experience. It neither shows us the world we live in, nor the world we should. It reinvents our perception, and shows us something we never imagined. Photography is controversy. Fashion, color, texture, shape, and emotion colliding in offensive and abrupt beauty.

Photography is beyond words.
