To bring awareness to plastic pollution and the albatross, the series “False Food” shows plastic waste collected from the bellies of dead albatross on Midway Atoll. Negative images can cause us to feel helpless and overwhelmed, triggering our reptilian brains to retreat. In this way, warnings about terror can become acts of terror themselves. “False Food” seeks to provide open space.
The Nowhere series is above all an urban story. An underground story which lets emptiness settle gradually between men. These parkings become silent witnesses of this strange urbanity. They represent our privacy part and our inability to integrate the city. They are a transit place where lives cross and uncross.Nowhere is also a story of solitude. Our eye gets lost in this disturbing place.Emptiness appeals emptiness as an unvoiced and deep breath...

The colors of Roebuck Bay in Broome, Western Australia, are simply sublime. I visited the region in mid this year and took a small aircraft flight over it one sunrise to capture some of its magic. This collection of images wonderfully highlights its staggering colorful beauty. Few places on our amazing planet can you see such incredibly vibrant array of colors as in the Kimberley. So in love with it.

I invite the viewer to seek the mystery beyond the appearance, in the broken up image, in the place between real and surreal.
For the Smash-up/Mash-up/Cut-up series of work I photograph plastic models I had made as a child on poster board in bright day-glo colors. The colors are selected to contrast with the models and also evoke the promise and freshness of childhood. I then smash and rephotograph them. Afterwards I sometimes combine the before and after photographs, other times I use just the smashed ones. This deconstruction of childhood illusions results in works using chance to create new art.
