Up in Smoke, 2016
Smoke is a fine metaphor for my art. After smoke accidently entered a photograph I began playing with this and found success using reverse and double imaging in post-production.
For most of these images my intentions were very clear. I had experimented with smoke a dozen times and knew about these possible resonances (the creation of faces and such), so I intended strong images that were portraits, even as I made no effort to control how that would happen. This series exemplifies how the invisible and the unconscious manifest in my images.
