About the Book
This book is a collection of images that were on display as part of the Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council's Art on the Walls program during the summer of 2011. This solo exhibition catalogues my journey of artistic self expression as a black and white fine art photographer.
The intent of my work is to provide a vehicle for my creative self-expression and the transformation from looking to seeing. As a result, I work from the inside out. I find myself moved by concepts that I cannot explain, but that I need to interpret by documenting textures and tonal qualities in an attempt to create images that bring the viewer into the subject. I have also discovered that in addition to producing a beautiful image, it is the state of being creative that provides the joyfulness of being an artist.
