I’m based in Columbus Ohio, US. An old store front serves as my studio.
Describe your work
I’m interested in the narrative and cinematic possibilities within the still photograph.
I am mostly known for my sex noir approach to sexual imagery.
What inspires you ?
I don’ t rely on inspiration. I’m committed to the “Work.” Work in the magick sense of the word.
“If you can’t be original, be inventive.” is one of my mantras.
Who are your main influences ?
Richard Lindner: iconic vocabulary
Irving Penn: lighting
Ralph Gibson: composition
William Burroughs: non linear thinking, “word is image, and image is word.”
Alfred Hitchcock: psychological suspense
Film Noir: the mystery of shadow
All of surrealism
