reating imagery that explores our relationships with objects, my work references visual styles of the past to emphasize the iconic and timeless nature of things natural and manufactured.

I begin with an obect, and then think about how I can create a portrait of it. I draw inspiration for the composition and lighting from historical genres of art. Production often involves staging multiple photographs, matching lighting and camera angles. In post production I combine and color grade the photographs. It’s not unusual for me to layer twenty or more photographs to create a single image.

My artwork is held in public, corporate, and private collections, and I collaborate with museums to create imagery for exhibitions. I produce, curate, and judge exhibitions of contemporary photography. I also work with science labs to help them improve and extend their imaging capabilities.

My artwork is available in limited editions from:
