DESCRIPTION

Many people have both written about and photographed this building beautifully and so I did not have a specific agenda upon visiting the Milwaukee Art Museum. For this was never intended to become a series, nor a documentary, but I found that it became a sort of journey. I let my mind free to wander, to explore behind my lens. Snapping moments; freezing light. I watched how people interacted within the space. It was clean; a neutral canvas which allowed me to paint my own story.

  • MOMENTS CAPTUREDMany people have both written about and photographed this building beautifully and so I did not have a specific agenda upon visiting the Milwaukee Art Museum. For this was never intended to become a series, nor a documentary, but I found that it became a sort of journey. I let my mind free to wander, to explore behind my lens. Snapping moments; freezing light. I watched how people interacted within the space. It was clean; a neutral canvas which allowed me to paint my own story.

    In the end, this became an unintentional project. The project of a free mind. For these are not moments that I have captured, but moments that have captured me.

  • The museum resembles a sculptural bird that is resting from flight, extending it's tail to the city. An interaction is created. A graceful extension. It's almost as if the sculpture was asking me to come explore. I did and this is what I found.

    A GRACEFUL EXTENSION

  • Walking into the atrium, I was immediately showered in light. It was open and inviting. I could not help myself but to look up in Windhover Hall. There was a sense of movement that was conveyed in the architecture. Everywhere I looked, there was a different scene that captured me. That tapped me on the shoulder and drew me near. I was not focused on the whole of the building but the intimate moments, the fragments, that when put together created the final story; the story of the Milwaukee Art Museum.

    THE OPEN INVITATION

  • ABOUTI am a self taught Chicago based photographer, where much of my inspiration derives from exploration. It is a journey in which perspective and subject is constantly changing. I m drawn by curiosity and learn through seeing. I str ive to frame the beauty that is of ten overlooked in order to expose a new form of interpretation.
