...even in darkness there's beauty
"Maybe these portraits are metaphors or maybe they are truths. My primary concern is not to make people look beautiful. They are that already. Nor do I seek to glamorise because any such intention is an act in the service of ego. My aim for these portraits is more about the suggestion of an inner reality than the celebration of an outer one. Emotive psychological states, ephemeral forms, meditative presence, the spaces between thoughts. This to me is the stuff of greatest interest, in art and in life."
