Expressions of Infinity

Through Expressions of Infinity (2015) I’m exploring the cosmos, the entire history of the universe from the Big Bang to the subatomic, right here on Earth.

Literal photography is about capturing memories. Abstract photography is about portraying fantasies. This portfolio serves as both for me. No better time is had than when I’m in nature shooting with photographer friends. We share an awe for the natural world in our souls. We deeply inhale it while witnessing it, and then exhale it in the fine print as a mix of memory and imagination.

I dream about the universe, the expanse of space and time through infinity, the birth of planets and death of stars, and how a thousand-year-old redwood perceives the world. There’s a fluidity and rhythm to the universe. It is a living thing but on a scale and dimension beyond our comprehension, and I’m trying to perceive it. What I’m really dreaming of is a better Earth—a way out of the mess we call civilization, its predatory greed and hypocrisy. But until then, I escape into my sci fi photography.

It’s not all dark, however. There’s always a hint of whimsy woven to my lifelong love of science, science fiction and existential comedy, and I bring that forward too, along with a hint of hopefulness and appreciation for the moment I documented.

Through macro and landscape photography, I’m suggesting celestial spacescapes and a peek into our planet’s prehistoric evolution. I’m finding the same patterns and aesthetic from Hubble telescope imagery here on Earth on a scale ranging from the grand landscape to the near microscopic.

From the Big Bang to the subatomic, quantum physics to metaphysics, documentary to science fiction—I’m inspired by all these scientific disciplines and fields of study: astrophysics, quantum physics, physics, planetology, astronomy, geology, volcanology, hydrology, meteorology, oceanography, seismology, chemistry, astrology, and numerology.

Each image stands as an individual representation of these themes, and is part of a larger science fiction narrative. The order moves viewers along on a spectrum from abstract to literal, and parallels the time line of the story, a tale that begins billions of years ago and comes more into focus as it approaches our own place on the cosmic calendar.

Limited edition of 10 prints for each photo.

Optical illusion of flames rising up from a sand dune.

A sand dune seemingly on fire creating a hellish abstract scene from the violent geology of Earth’s formation. This photograph was accepted into the 2015 Center for Photographic Art’s Juried Exhibit, and recognized by the International B&W Spider Awards.
