For some, photographic realism means capturing a scene as close as possible to how it was viewed by the photographer at the moment of capture. The pieces in this gallery also reflect how I felt about the scene and my later interpretation of the image based on the reality of what I saw. However, though this gallery is as close to realism as I ever get, it’s more how I choose to see the world than how it really appears.

The image Commute maybe my best example of this. It was heavily cut, pasted and reworked, and I knew from the moment the shutter clicked what the picture was. But, was it what I saw…or how I wanted to see it?

There was a real feeling of estrangement within a very crowded space and both women had the same expression of longing that was only differentiated by years. To heighten the feeling, I quickly went to black and white and brought the two women into much closer proximity within the image. In the end, I look at this picture and immediately recall the feelings I had on the train that day -- that these two could be the same woman gazing at the same object outside and feeling the same emotion. . .we just catch her at a different time in her life.

The images here are about my emotional response to a visual trigger that I tried to capture and then interpret.
