Artist Statement

Artist Statement

The camera works to document the external, but more importantly, magnifies the mysteries which exist within one’s self. Steve's photography is about trying to find the emotional undercurrent of the way memory and vision merge to recreate new interpretations about the past, present and future. His images question the complex human nature of our solitary existence while looking at our shared interactions presented within a single photograph. With his images, the narrative both describes and raises assumptions as to what is occurring within the frame, often shrouded in the metaphorical fog of uncertainty that is universally common to the human experience. Steve’s photographs clearly have a respect for his subjects while sometimes enjoying the whimsical and spontaneous juxtapositions created by his point of view.

Steve also explores the repetition of patterns and design while playing with the very basics of artistic expression: form, light, color and lines. He challenges the viewer to make sense of the common while he pulls you into the unfamiliar. Skewing spatial relationships while reinterpreting and defining other ways to see and interpret reality. His work on automobiles and architecture focusses on the beautiful and skilled craftsmanship while his B+W studies of urban places looks back with a romantic view of where America has been and with wry sense of humor, as to where we are going. Steve thrives on creating a fresh and authentic vision and he continues to experiment and explore the roads less travelled.

For more information about his photographs, contact him either by email or phone.

Available in limited and numbered editions as archival pigment prints or as dye sublimation metal aluminum prints. Hand signed, numbered and shipped worldwide.

'The Art of the Automobile' series is an open and unlimited series of his work and is printed on gloss dye sublimation metal aluminum and besides a float backing, needs no additional framing. Perfect marriage between the gloss finish of the metal on a car and the gloss finish of these unique prints.
