The essence of life falls somewhere between the all too familiar pain of reality and the too often fleeting memories of whimsical beauty, when we were able to find it.
I’m constantly trying to find magic. To catch it. To hold onto it. To remember it.
In the real world, the world I live in, the world I work in, the world where the drudgery of reality is all too clear; within my photography I found an escape. I don’t capture reality. I actually don’t even try. I want to create magic. I want to create a glimpse into the all too fleeting glimpses of whimsical beauty we are only sometimes able to recognize when it’s present.
This is what the freelensing technique helps me to do. And I find that I am most connected and inspired by art I’ve created using it.
