The effects of light and the sky are intriguing. Light thoroughly transforms an object or a scene. Shadows, at the same time, are evocative and mysterious; they indicate the presence of something not necessarily visible in the image. An allegorical feeling is the result. My work often captures this. Language in all its forms is a great source of entertainment for me. In addition, many things appeal to my sense of humor in unexpected ways. My photographs often contain words as well as incongruous objects.
