Photography (Places)

Trully paying homage to my hometown of St Petersburg, Florida; my landscape photography possess a duality and complexity as rich as the streets that raised me and institutions that refined me. I find pleasure in urban dwellings, city structures, chrome and dilapidated buildings. I oftentimes find myself to be an outsider looking in many social arenas because I tend to view life through a viewfinder, constantly framing still-lifes through the settings I saunter. Honing in on this skill has taken some time and considerable nurturing but has over the years given me a photographic voice all my own.
