My passion and obsession is concerned with viewing found or available, common objects in an unconventional manner. By juxtaposing unrelated objects (flowers, food stuffs), photographing familiar objects in unfamiliar ways, or altering the scale of objects, I enable qualities of abstraction and unfamiliarity that are otherwise unseen, to blossom through the vivid detail of each photograph. I am most concerned with the final visual result of each photograph, as well as the responses and reactions from the viewer. It is the fine line between attraction and repulsion that I am interested in, and how this causes different responses in different viewers, depending on their individual ideas of attraction and repulsion.
