I have dabbled in photography for the bulk of my life.
It’s something I enjoy but has never been a major focus of my work.
I like to capture images that scale down a subject.
The result is something everyone can see but
won’t identify as a piece of the entire landscape.
I have a strong affection for parking garages, the roofs in particular.
I went to a progressive, alternative high school and we had open campus so my best friend and I went to a hole in the wall pizza shop next to a parking garage downtown. We would ride the elevator to the top of the garage and have lunch up there almost every day. Nearly 20 years later I still seek out these kinds of roofs, which has lead to countless impromptu photo shoots. Here are some more recent shots.
These are some experiments with shapes and textures.
I gravitate towards compositions that show extreme points of view in otherwise mundane subjects.
And of course some experiments with perspective.
I’ve done a lot of traveling in the last few years and much of it has involved taking various forms of mass transit.
I really like playing with perspective and trains in particular provide many opportunities to do so.
