From a young age I realized that I was attracted not to necessarily the pretties girls, but the cooler ones who never fit a mold. I wanted to try and capture an image of them at this moment in time and to generate interest in who they were at this moment of their lives. Of course once they said yes I had to talk and listen to them so they’d relax, share with me part of their lives. Very hard to do as an eighteen year old male with raging hormones, but once I mastered this trick the knowledge I received was priceless.
That is the bases for my photography, my art if you will. I want you to know my girls, what it is that makes them tick, to carve out a space for them to be them. To invite you into their lives and minds at this particular time and place. The fact that they are unclothed should matter as a afterthought and not the primary emotion. A final word on the term “my girls”, its not meant in a paternal fashion nor does it imply any sort of ownership. These young women trust me to do right by them and I am very protective of their rights.
So we invite you to view these images and to make polite comments on the images you see. Thank you.
