ARTIST STATEMENT: “Without contraries there is no progression. Attraction and repulsion, reason and energy, love and hate, are necessary to human existence.” – Oscar Wilde My photographs are a series of portraits - people of my choosing who reflect certain aspects of myself. The subjects that I choose to photograph are a reflection of who I am. Their personas seek to embody and convey, the characteristics that I have, or long for. As merely animals in a wild urban jungle, humans search for meaning and presence. My interest lies in a lifestyle that revolves around the romance of pissing, puking, drinking, fighting, laughter, and overall rawness. Each person is filled with dynamic qualities of both the beautiful, and the grotesque. A subject I once photographed said that each person is like a diamond, they have many faces, but not all of which are revealed. I wish to capture a moment that honestly describes a person, or at least a small part of them. These moments I choose to photograph are honest and significant. I try to make a certain connection with my subject, and have that connection evident through my portraits. I prefer to create portraits where the person wears a somewhat stagnant expression, and let the details of the person, and the location speak. I want their personality to be overwhelmingly evident with no assistance from any hysterical expression. These moments are, however, in my experience fleeting ‘epiphanies’, and when captured by the camera, remain to be self-portraits. In the end, I wish this collection of urban portraits to paint a picture of a generation.
