When I shoot my colored Abstractions I try to capture the objects in the realest state possible. In the beginning of my abstract projects I would set the situation up, I would hold objects in front of my lens to experiment and see what kind of shape or color reaction I would get from its surroundings. After a while, I just started seeing things as shapes and colors. I no longer needed to create the situation, it was already there in the simplest places, like in the car wash, in the park, in my sink, at ikea, etc. My main focus on this project is to investigate line, shape, form and color through photography.
Self Control is a project where I explored personal limitations. I wanted to capture people having full control of themselves while holding their heads under water as long as they could. What I found was that I also captured the contradiction of self control, when my subject lost all restraint of their facial expressions.
Human Form is a project that I challenged myself with. I am comfortable abstracting still life objects and on this project I decided to step out of my comfort zone and abstract the human body. I wanted to capture the texture of skin, every hair, every wrinkle, and every bump.
