Real Things © 2009 is a collection of photographs that express what is real, through curiosity, the love of colour, shapes, light, perspective, concepts and themes. Each photo was taken to display the moment as it occurred, with no image modification whatsoever, with minimal brightness adjustment on 10 of the 176 images. Photography is often a metaphor for the events of our daily lives. These images speak to me not only for the moments they represent, but also as an expression of a broader life experience. I hope that you enjoy them.
