Artist Statement

My images are the product of my memories and imagination, the reverse of what we expect from photography.

Nothing is more enlightening about a place than its backroads. They are a bit darker, but always more insightful. These are the places that hold onto wisps of Carver and Cheever, or the occasional brushstroke of Hopper or Wyeth. As I drive these roads I don't take a camera with me, but wait for the memories of the trip to select an image for me; and weather conditions, and time of day. Eventually, I go back with a camera and shoot with natural light. It's about the fastest shoot ever, yet what is captured is pure America...with a Jersey accent.

When I choose to create an image from my imagination, I shoot in my studio using small toys as my subjects, creating dioramas around them using props, lighting, and projected background images. This gives me the freedom to comment on American culture with 3-D images on-camera directly as I imagine them.
