I am a published fine art photographer. I experiment with a variety of subjects such as still life, nature, animals and documentary. My work offers a unique perspective that is simple, yet bold, rich with contrast and color, and lends itself to storytelling that leaves the viewer deciding the plot.

    Patient as a mental disorder patient? or patience for wait for the execution? I’m sorry for being ignorant. i can feel some drama.

  • She is the victim in this film. She is held captive by a mad scientist.
