The body of work entitled, “The Wallflower Project”, examines the social stigma of being a “wallflower” through the use of portraits created with a cardboard pinhole camera. This project features the fading “Wallflower” through portraiture, merging the model with their wallpaper background. The resulting images create a ghostly portrait that requires the viewer to take notice and spend time to see the person before them.

From 2003-2005, I worked in a studio in the Remington Arms Factory. The Remington Disarmed was shot outside my studio door and includes intentially abstracted images of the factory and machinery. No Photoshop techniques were used to capture the images.
