Déjà Vu

By exploring the concept of landscape in a different perspective, I create fluid images that places the viewer in the image. My work establishes a link between the landscapes reality and that imagined by its conceiver. By questioning the concept of current, I investigate the dynamics of panorama, including the manipulation of its effects and the limits of spectacle based on our assumptions of what landscape means to us. Finally, I manipulate the image one last time by printing city scapes onto metal and nature scapes onto wood, allowing the material to show through the image.

 

Holga

The Holga is a camera, first manufactured in China in 1981, made almost entirely of plastic, some even have plastic lenses. The earliest models of the Holga camera used a 120 medium format film (a popular film format back then). It shot in 6x4.5 cm or 6x6 cm aspect ratios. It was an invention intended for the Chinese consumer as a low-budget, everyday kind of camera for capturing family photos and portraits, but has since gathered many to follow. 

 

Thus, in my work with holga, I have done a wide range of styles, from color holga to 35mm film holga.

 

Around The World

​​The famed astronomer, Carl Sagan, once said, "Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it we go nowhere." I echo that thought into my personal artwork. As a photographer, I digitally manipulate an image into a so called "planet." By applying abstraction, I create intense moments to lure the viewer round and round in circles.

 

 

Star Trails

I have just recently experimented with the photography technique of star trailing. Within these images I expose an image over a certain time frame (30min. to 2hrs.). These images allow to show the viewer the trails that stars make at night.
