My approach to photography is akin to the way "found object" art is constructed, as in the work of early Surrealist, Dada and Assemblage artists of the 20th Century. Utilizing accidental and random photographic images, some inanimate and some human, often in combination with mixed media, my intent is to make a photograph that breaks out of the traditional photographic form and confronts the viewer as a completely new construct.
