For the past seven years, I have been returning to my hometown of Titusville Pennsylvania to make photographs. I am trying to better understand myself by creating images of these hard working people who live one day at a time. The story is told in both their surroundings and their weathered expressions. Although I am very closely tied to this particular body of work, I think the meaning and emotion behind it can be seen in my other images. Ultimately, the characters in my photographs weave a fantastical tale of dedicating one's life to being human.
Overall, my work is an ongoing expression of my heritage through reality and fantasy. I try to approach every photograph I make and every subject I encounter as a challenge to make my best work yet - to tell a story and represent a subject in a way that I've never done before. Ultimately, the characters in my photographs weave a fantastical tale of dedicating one's life to being human.
