. you



Welcome, and thank you for coming by

to take a look.  



In these commercialized, instagram'd times, our ways of seeing beauty have become played out - a lovely, endless rose parade of conventional tropes. 


The mission of my work is to revitalize a sense of the unexpected in beauty.  Here we encounter it in less familiar contexts, and look beyond the usual notions of prettiness to connect beauty more directly and deeply with ideas that matter to us, ideas that go to the heart of life and death and human folly. 


You'll find a lot on view.  A dozen photo-essays. 

40 galleries.  Maybe 1,000 images.

Many styles and experiments. 

Some sad and shocking things.


The art here involves looking at pictures, of course, but not just that. The titles and texts prod you to consider alternate meanings, and may change how you feel about what you're seeing. 


I designed this place with your visit in mind, so it's all been organized and labeled carefully.  Every gallery grouping opens with its own intro, the ..why.  


Explore as much as you like.  Next you might want to check out:

From there, head anywhere.  


Again thank you.                                       

It's wonderful that you've come by.
