When things come apart they are either broken or they are taken apart. They might be dismantled intentionally to see how the process works. The following images are a part of the dismantling process of the subjects that we encounter in our lives. Reverse engineering is done to see how all of the pieces fit together. The process of documenting our surroundings can not only dismantle our world, but also who we are and how we interact with our surroundings.

We start with a massive picture in front of us. Too large to view it all at one time. Slowly the scene is sculpted, trimmed, and cropped. Angles change and viewpoints are altered. Slowly the dismantling takes place until we are left with an essence of the subject. It all seems random. Light reflects, motion is stopped, and space is compressed.

It's not the end result of the process that holds any meaning. It is within the dismantling process that truth can be found. Remove the extra unneeded lining and we are left with a nakedness that reflects either the good,bad, or somewhere in between. Together the totality of the images enhance our view and our experience with ourselves in our world.

I have been carrying a camera with me for 25 years. I shoot the things in life, were I am. The subjects are usually not beautiful on their own, but somehow strike me by the beauty found in their commonality. Not the extraordinary, but the ordinary. Simple, usually quiet subjects that may go unnoticed. Black and white because, I guess that is the way I see. To me, my images feel a bit sad, a bit strange, a bit interesting, and the subjects, somehow unique. I hope you enjoy and thank you for visiting.
