Inspired by both the Pictorialism photo movement and the Luminism painting movement, my new color work aims to step beyond the realistic documentary nature of straight photography. To do this, I draw upon my experience and vision from the traditional photographic darkroom and other artistic training to build images with a deeper story. In the digital darkroom, I manipulate the images by burning, dodging, masking, and adding textures to create the vision I have for each scene.
