Entry Description

I love traveling the world because it allows me to discover and interact with new places, people and cultures. I have had the opportunity to shoot many landscapes including the caves of Ibiza, the shores of Tulum, the forests of Costa Rica and Upstate NY, the jungle of the Congo and the deserts of Israel. I spend days scouting landscapes - looking for a magical feeling, a connection, a visual that resonates with me. Once I find it I approach the first local woman that has been aligned with me and I ask her if she would be my muse, if she would allow me to photograph her in her natural environment, her domain, her home. I ask my muse to wear something that is custom to her culture, something that she feels natural and comfortable to her - sometimes it is nothing at all. I am drawn the the strength of the feminine.

I love traveling the world because it allows me to discover and interact with new places, people and cultures. I have had the opportunity to shoot many landscapes including the caves of Ibiza, the shores of Tulum, the forests of Costa Rica and Upstate NY, the jungle of the Congo and the deserts of Israel. I spend days scouting landscapes - looking for a magical feeling, a connection, a visual that resonates with me. Once I find it I approach the first local woman that has been aligned with me and I ask her if she would be my muse, if she would allow me to photograph her in her natural environment, her domain, her home. I ask my muse to wear something that is custom to her culture, something that she feels natural and comfortable to her - sometimes it is nothing at all. I am drawn the the strength of the feminine. And it is this force that compels me to capture these beautiful, strong yet graceful creatures in their natural environments through my lens. This series is the unity of femininity and nature and draws on the parallels between them. I like to work with the ultimate source of light and life, The Sun and Nature. The sunlight is my guide. I wait patiently for the right moment when the light graces my subjects body, illuminating her pure beauty, a romantic dance between the infinite and finite.
