Providing an escape from the immediate world we live in, my work places a spin on the laws of the physical world and replaces them with endless possibilities of dreams. Many of my images present the desire within us to become free. I combine aspects of the world which we are currently in, and the world that we want to be in. I do believe that many of the objects from our physical world seamlessly carry over to the surreal world. The dark and melancholic colors represent the emotions that I believe many have built up inside of them, but do not let free. Some images may be perceived as happy upon first glance, but will make the observer rethink later on. Levitation provides an escape from the possible and brings us into the world of impossible. With the use of a camera and Photoshop, the once impossible worlds are now realities.
