Los Angeles summer has been the hottest of my recent memory, at least since the early 2000's. It has not stopped my night wanderings or my daytime walking through its streets of urban sprawl. I will be working on several book projects these next few months in order to gain greater appreciation for story telling. My galleries can be quite chaotic but I enjoy the chaos of art just thrown out there for the user to decipher what the meaning and the real story behind the pictures. But as my buddy Gabriel Kwok used to say quite often, Perception Precedes Reality; I like how that sounds but would like to add that I feel much more fortunate when Reality precedes Perception.

Yes the butterfly fluttered off so I chase other butterflies.

Los Angeles is not a walking city; but I have done a lot of walking around it lately; up to 80 miles a week at some points. There are a few interesting things to be found along these journeys, while it is no Tokyo it has interesting spots. I have found a myriad of new photo locations for my shoots and I enjoy going against the mold as I do with my photography.

Welcome to the new site; its now mobile friendly as you can notice by shrinking your browser the content will fit in the browser window down to displaying the full images when you get to iPhone sizes. Since I have a huge backlog of work to show there will be a few updates to the side rapidly in the next few weeks; so keep coming back and enjoy this new set of work.

My first book "The Sea at the End of the World" is in its final stages; more info when I get it and I am working on writing for my second book; it too should be in graphic novel format. I have a gallery showing in the Midwest in October so also more info later on that.
