About

My love is interior photography, but most specifically desolate and neglected interiors. I see these areas for their details. I love to draw attention to the most tiny and seemingly insignificant items. I feel as though there are stories to be told, memories to be heard and history to be recorded in many items that are just left by the wayside.

Every artifact that I photograph is shown how it is found. As the artist, I want to create beauty but I let the objects and places speak for themselves.

As a photographer my primary goal has always been to shed light on the forgotten and use them as components of stories. I want all of these dying places to live again once more before they are gone forever. That is the basis for this series. In the future I hope to have the opportunity and ability to convey the same message in all my work. To those that see my work I want to show this issue, the carelessness that we have left behind, however I also want to show them that there is hope. This is a widespread dilemma, we have the opportunities to come together and change this problem.

In May of 2010, I was given the honor of showcasing my work at Prairie State College when I was awarded the title of Photographer of the Year. My art is in several galleries surrounding the Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana area.
