Icons have been made of the saints of religion, but seldom of the congregation. In an effort to transcend human frailty, religious dogma and philosophical schemes often trivialize humanity to a row of paper dolls. My work stresses the importance of the individual in their relationship to metaphysics, philosophy is much like x-rays or infrared light – invisible, yet ever-present. My thesis works are portraits with metaphysics made visible by the camera, but not allowed to overpower the humanity of the subject.
