Work from his oeuvre.
“Abstractions of refracted light, visible only “in dust”, emphasize the physical and chemical aspects of photography through the unique character of the negative. This work was inspired by phenomenons of light and rendered by means of large format photography. Comprised of both colour and black and white photographs, this body of work is an exercise in ‘seeing’ and photographic looking. Activated by its illusion, the black and white photograph in this series functions as an index from which to be referenced when considering the body of work. The crystal-like texture in this photograph reads as ‘something’, yet describes nothing but its subject ― illumination. These same devises exist in the colour photographs, however, the texture of the black and white photo is replaced by soft pastel hues that at once can reference the cosmic, the psychedelic, and the nostalgic. While they do invoke planets, sunsets, and even hard-edge painting, these semi-representational large-scale reproductions of the effects of light serve as opportunity to experience this spectrum in a way that can only be achieved through a series of lenses and mirrors.” – Circuit Gallery
