I like to find things, shapes and scenes that most people just walk by. I like to think that these photographs give life to forgotten or ignored beauty
These photographs are inspired by the way things have changed over the decades in Columbia County , NY. I grew up here and am fascinated by local history. This collection is about combining the past with the present.
Taking photographs of street life is like being a visual historian for future generations. I enjoy seeing how people interact and how they live their lives.
I wanted to see how leaves looked close up as well as getting “portraits” of bugs. Then the series expanded from there. Each portrait is isolated with a single color backdrop to simplify the photograph.
