Artist’s statement

My work is a photographic exploration of architectural structures and the presence and absence of the human form to create aesthetic compositions. I was inspired by the fashion photography of Leonie Barth, and used my love of design to create minimalist works of art. Through the simplicity found in line I enhanced the structural aesthetics of the building I took my photographs in. I wanted to convey to my audience the simplicity that is found in photography and the raw beauty of the human form.
