"The dreamer wakens to a spectral gaze, an unbeknownst irradiation, indulging in the infinite realm of the unknown. Dark spaces meshing with beams of blinding light create transcendence beyond the edge of the frame, sliding into the void of the imaginary."

"Playing with the assumption of a photograph as the documented real, I bring efficacy to otherworldly spaces. I manipulate of color, scale, and light, enhancing the affect of experience, rather than a representation of reality.

I use photography as a way to actualize visions of an alternate world, a space of endlessness. Privileged eyes can burrow into this fantasy space through collective forms like geometric portals, nature, and light."
