About the Book
I am trying to find certain things when I have a camera in my hands. It may be something beautiful, emotional, thought-provoking... something no one will ever see for themselves... or something just plain silly (see cover). This is what I like to do, and this is a book of what I think "just works".
I started taking photos because people said I had a good eye, and an interesting way of looking at things. I really liked the first few photos I took when I started "really trying" to bring about a certain mood or feeling in a photo. I guess I've just kept on learning and moving forward. "AEPOC" started out as my band... but has pretty much become "me". "an electronic pulse of creativity". I find it interesting, some people think I'm just crazy. :) It means a lot to me... it personifies who I am, how I think, the crap I come up with, all the poems I write, all the photos I take, and all the music I've made. It's me, in a nutshell. To quote the movie Troy: I was born, and this is what I am.
