As Ansel Adams said “You don’t take a photograph, you make it.” This is how I look at each photograph I make. I strive to capture a moment in time for all eternity, a moment never to be replicated but always to be remembered.
Within the space of a square frame, I attempted to build a world that is undeniably separate from the one we live in. What fascinates me about any artistic medium is that it can pull the viewer out of a logical and common world, and place them within a space that is more alive, more chaotic. Each photograph creates an alternate reality or ordered chaos.
In the city, I am drawn to the colors and the frenetic pace. I look for the energy of Boston yet somehow infuse it with a magical, fluid, slow-motion feel. Long exposure photography takes many moments of chaos and synthesizes them into one, singular, moment of order. Each is a series of movements captured as one frozen split second, never to be captured the same way again.
