The Nature of Being Series
The nature of light is two-fold. It
has characteristics of both a wave and a particle. This duality shares

human-beings we are not just a physical presence but also spiritual
The relationships formed between the figures and objects in the
images have both personal and shared connections. The dialogues
established in each image come from collaboration between the subjects
Constructed from two photographic sources and aesthetics,
the unexpected effects of the tintype are brought together with the
control and clarity of color film to create a digital amalgamation that
references both the physical and immaterial nature of the photograph.
Layers of duality are brought together in these images, forming a
co-emergence of signs that suggest the indefinable nature of being.
