Statement

I have been photographing in color for the past four years.  The subjects of my photographs have been places and objects from my childhood that I associated with excitement.  And although we all should have grown-out of these obsessions, I am exploiting my status as an adult to indulge in my every whim.

Color is the most important aspect of these photographs.  The glossy and saturated color palette provided by candy manufacturers is designed to create desire all on its own without the sense of smell or taste.  Striking at the heart of what motivates most of us in life and in looking at art – visual desire.
