Interrupted by People

Every photographer is mesmerized on a regular basis by scenes with amazing light. For me, that often happens in environments that are devoid of people. There’s something pristine about an environment — even a human-constructed one — where natural light wafts in and creates…well, call it what you will: an essence, a mood, a feeling. What’s fascinating to me is that such characteristics are innately human terms that I’m drawing from a scene devoid of people. Once I've been captivated by the fall of light in a space, I’ll make a note of the scene, and come back to it with a model. Force-fitting the human form into the previously untouched scene creates something entirely new. And that’s what I’ve sought to capture in this series.
