These photos were taken shortly before and immediately after my friend Sunny gave birth to her daughter Iris. I’m currently reading When you’re falling, Dive by Mark Matousek, which talks about how fear and pain can awaken us from a slumber of indifference and provoke extraordinary growth. I felt like childbirth is a perfect example of this and the photos themselves illustrate the terror and enlightenment of such extreme situations.
I am a fine art photographer in Denver, Colorado. My work runs the gamut from high-end fashion to the deconstruction of masculinity. My curiosity and appreciation for the many different methods art is created and perceived has led to a diverse expression. I find myself drawn to a multitude of different themes, mediums and how they all relate and object to each other. My work stems from a belief that art is in everything.
