Antipatico

In my photography, I seek overlooked angles and textured forms, vibrant displays of discarded beauty and grains. Looking for the tree in the forest, I focus further on the patterns in the bark. My vision is everyday objects abstracted via detailed selection. I seek blatant colors juxtaposed with decay to project the beauty in its passing. In the human form, I try to show the sensuality in non sexual captures, to play on shadows and the bends of flesh. I always shoot with a zoom lens, leaving the picture to find me, rather than I to find the picture. I hope to prove that art can be found anywhere if one would just take a moment to look.
