Artist's Statement

When you think of the big cities, you normally think of crowed streets, flowing traffic and just lots of people in general. The city is usually that last place where someone would paint a picture of feeling isolated. But sometimes, this is the place where people can feel the loneliest of all. Being in a crowd can make one feel blended into the background and overlooked, almost unseen like a ghost. I played with this feeling of loneliness in the big city and worked with it, but in a more literal sense. In this series called “The Big City”, I took a model out into the city and shot him all by himself in the background. Then manipulated the images to make them appear almost ghost like. Taking the feeling that so many people feel and turning it into an image to possibly relate to.
