This is "Life Reflected". I took it in 2012 as part of my Reflection series and it is also part of my Self-Portrait Series as well. It is a single exposure of me reflected through pains of glass that had wild weeds growing through the glass. It was a found setup as I was working with existing objects. Light source was early morning direct sun. the only manipulation of the photograph was that I tinted it to be sepia.

The above image is called "Her Hat" it is part of my self-portrait seris as well. It has a very somber tone to it. Often I shoot many images in black and white because that is my favorite way to capture the mood. High contrast has always interested me as well. it is the closest way I can get to a woodblock print without actually carving a plate. Growing up I was often amazed by the artist Kathe Kollwitz She was a german printmaker. Some of her work was very controversial and her studio was bombed by the Nazis. I am not a political artist, nor a printmaker, but her style has had a great influence on my work.
Currently just wrote a grant proposal to try and get my self-portrait series funded. I am not going to say which one, I am still a little superstitious at this point. I will definately know in the upcoming months though.
