14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
This photograph was taken at moonlight on Palm Beach Island. My work is a collage of saturated memories from my early childhood infused with my expanding adventurers from my travels and everyday life. My defining moment came while traveling through the Costa Brava coastal towns of Spain, there I began experimenting using my camera as a painter uses a paintbrush. Seeing the world through painterly eyes, I began to deeply explore the relationship between the familiar and the abstraction. My goal is for the viewer to see the world in a larger reality and what appears to be clear and in focus is only our perception. This gives tension and mystery to my images.
