In my fine art photography I often photograph naturally occurring overlaid images, such as shadows, objects behind fences, and window reflections, including ubiquitous display mannequins. I create surreal composite photographs through in-camera multiple exposures, which yield luminous colors unlike those in any other photography or fine art media.
The urban environment is a great place to satisfy my love of abstract fine art photography, which I consider to be abstract color painting through photographs. However, searching out colorful photographs in the American urban environment requires a lot of leg work, because I favor lush colors but do not digitally enhance the colors of my urban fine art photographs.
Attracted by color and decoration, in my travels I seek every opportunity to take colorful fine art photographs, focusing on abstract photography from architectural subjects. Buddhist, Shinto, and Hindu temples are excellent sources of opulent color and sumptuous design, while Mexican architecture is a haven of painted textures with colonial design flourishes.
