My approach is simple: Nothing is Ordinary. That makes the world a continual source of inspiration and creative wanderings.
At the beginning of 2018, I began a 365 project that centered on photographing with instant cameras. Believe me, I had a lot of fails. What bothered was the growing number of prints that for whatever reason, did not turn out very well.
Changing directions in my creative life, have come from those fails, or “happy mistakes.” In searching for a solution, I came across a process as Polaroid decay. That was the answer to my problem and helped me repurpose Polaroid prints that would otherwise be consigned to the trash.
The process is a simple one: images are submerged in a mixture of water and bleach for anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. The end result is a rearranging of light, color and form into something strikingly and often surprisingly delightful.
I photograph many different subjects, but one constant has been my dogs, who I have found can often act as mirrors of my own explorations, emotions, hopes and fears. Being able to look into a dog’s eyes and face and capture some element of that dog’s personality is among the most satisfying feelings I have experienced.
