Sakura Con

Sakura Con takes place annually towards the end of April at the Seattle convention center. It is the anime event where all types of people congregate and display their costumes and love for the genre. For a lunch break, several friends and I perused the character exhibitions and immersed ourselves, or at least tried to, in this culture if only for a short while. I wish we could have stayed longer, but we had to get back to work.

New York City

A recent trip to NY. It was a bit gloomy for the time I was there, but I managed to sneak away a few shots of various parts of the city. I think the area I enjoyed the most was the meat packing district, where the High Line is located. Lots of interesting new work going on there, very artistically inclined.

a crocodile

Some conceptual practice along with image layering practice. I made the attempt to create a story of this crocodile going to get 'human shoes' to discuss ideas of natural waste/environmental destruction and the lengths some people will go to try to 'stand out', but didn't really know where to take it and how to add images to the series. It has stopped here for the time being until I can figure anything else out, which may or may not happen...

Moving Earth

An exploration into the act of creation through construction, looking at how architects, engineers, contractors, and construction groups begin to affect the natural and built environments. These particular projects first involved the removal of earth, for a number of reasons, and thus created a 'positive' form from the 'negative' act of removal. Perhaps this work will become a renowned piece of architectural ingenuity, perhaps it will become a dilapidated slum...only time will tell.

Yellowstone - Mammoth Hot Springs

A fellow photographer in front of the Mammoth Hot Springs really gives you some sense of scale for the surroundings.

Mammoth Hot Springs

One of a few posts to come, this series is part of a recent trip to Yellowstone National Park towards the end of September. This series, shot at the Mammoth Hot Springs, was the first stop on our 1.5 day venture throughout the park. The stench of sulphur was almost immediate, as were the beautiful colors and intricate formations created from the geothermal activity. Unfortunately, these are not the hot springs to wade about in, as you would probably receive severe skin burns....too bad.
