This series of 5 photographs are created through a combination of studio photographs and cell phone photographs. They are printed by using vellum negatives printed on a BW laser printer. The images are printed with cyanotype chemicals embedded in gel medium painted onto heavy canvas. The prints are framed by floating frames made by materials found at any Home Depot.
My purpose is to show people the importance of the events they miss on a daily basis. To force a connection they were too busy to initiate themselves. To show them a photograph is so much more then a memory, to bring their attention to the very functions of how our society is running could be oppressing a group of people while simultaneously encouraging another. In my case, I show people that masculinity is changing and that to push the human race beyond mediocracy we need to understand why it needs to change and encourage more change across the spectrum of societies mechanics. I believe that there is more to being a man, and more to the world that the human race can contribute. It is my goal to push that idea and I accomplish it by being an artist and devoting my practice to continue to research and materialize my ideas in a manner that can be absorbed so constructive discussion can be utilized.
