In the Isolation series, I intend to present objects and places without the dynamics of their environment. What happens to such object or place when we place it in a state of isolation that forces us to focus solely on the object without any context of its surroundings. There is no sky, no background, just the object or place. While the black backdrop may suggest an image made at night, the light qualities will show otherwise. By isolating the object, it stays in a constant state without change.

Former editorial and commercial photographer with work published in the USA and Europe turned to fine-art work. Past clients include GQ, Men's Health, Golf Digest, Austin Monthly, and Bicycling Magazine. My current focus lies on the built environment and human altered landscape as well as the people living with and in it.
