2011 – 2013

Everyone is forced into a relationship with the unknown at some point in their life. For me, there is an excitement and exhilaration that accompanies this. By negating fear and realizing that uncertainty exists everywhere, life is put in a strange stranglehold between fiction and hyperreality. These are uncanny moments that give a deeper look into the abyss, where time falters and possibilities are limitless.
