Synapses is a collection that seeks to challenge the traditional realism of photography.
With this collection, I have tried to take highly symbolic images, or at times very ambiguous and suggestive images, and placed them in a context that is foreign, that allows each individual to interpret meaning or emotion, based on their own life experience. Some may see joy, others fear, sadness, hope….
Combining photographs with digital painting, I have tried to mimic what happens in each of our brains. Tied together with filaments, each image shows motion, the impulses that connect memories to experiences.
As you experience this collection, allow yourself to make your own connections. Look for your own answers, your own mystery, your own symbolic vocabulary. The experience will be your own.
