I aim to capture the essence of a scene, be it an object, a location or an activity. I simply use the camera as an optical instrument with which to create abstract expressions of what I feel is present. Though remaining recognizable, the subjects are not represented exactly as they appear to the human eye. By submitting them to abstraction using a manual process, I intend to encapsulate an intrinsic quality. In effect, the images are perceived in a more intuitive way.

I always felt that there is a kind of elegance that emerges when cars are photographed in isolation, unaccompanied by human presence. It is this elegance, mystery that I seek to emulate with the light sculptures I have created by placing LED lights along the signature lines of iconic cars of the sixties.
