Project Description

Photographs document performers in an implied visual opera. Performers attempt to engage the viewer by presenting a range of characters cast within the urban environment of downtown Los Angeles.

Artist Statement

My photographic work has focused on creating works that reveal an interaction with local and international cultural representatives in the urban landscape of Los Angeles. In 2005, I founded Virtual Verite, an international ensemble performance troupe to create photographs.
