Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

When I think of Nature in Florida, I think of the large variety of tropical plants and their symmetrical beauty. For this image of palm leaves, I photographed them to emphasize their balanced shape. The golden frond was a palm leaf in a state of decay as it transitioned from one stage of its life to another. This image is from my “Odyssey” portfolio series, which features scenes that have been broken apart and reassembled into an abstract interpretation of the subject with an underlying geometric structure reflecting our desire to mentally dig deep into the surface of our environment to find its meaning.

Artist Profile

Hometown: Boca Raton

Based in: Boca Raton

I have been involved with high-resolution digital photography and digital manipulation for many years. My prints combine multiple image files taken at very high resolution. They are used to create ultra-sharp photographs for mural-sized prints. My “Odyssey”, “Juxtapose”, and “Horizon” portfolio art series use this personally developed post-production technique to achieve a unique look for my printed photographic art.
I have been a commercial photographer in New York City advertising world for over twenty years where and photographed for most major ad agencies taking photographs for companies such as L’Oréal, Revlon, Clairol, and many others. For the past five years, I have lived and worked in Boca Raton, Florida where I fell in love with the Florida landscapes of the Everglades, the ocean, and weather phenomena as the main subjects of my art photography.
I call my technique “Image Architecture” where my approach to constructing the image is to first break apart a scene into component parts by taking many photographs of the scene from myriad angles – from the air, from the land, at different times of day, etc. -- then use those parts as the building blocks for reconstructing a new scene with minimalist, geometric, and architectural overtones. I have been focusing my photography on scenes of the Everglades and other subjects of natural beauty, particularly in Florida, to focus attention on its fragile, ever-changing beauty and the important role we humans play in the formula. I try to give my photographs a multi-faceted beauty that inspires participation in the ecological movement to save these preciously beautiful natural resources.
