About the Book
My photographs are cathartic, visual representations of the obsessions, frustrations, and anger I live with each day. These intense feelings stem from and are a means to cope with a failure to reconcile a conflict that exists between my internal impulses, the connection I feel to the beauty, both simple and complex, that surrounds me, and the disgust I feel due to the societal forces that trigger this dissonance. Simply, the images are an expression of my inability to relate to a society that I am reluctant to be a part of, enabling me to transcend language and put on display the emotions, convictions, and struggles that I endure in a way that verbal or written discourse could never approach. My suffering is portrayed at its most raw and base level, to be seen by all, including its creator.
