ForContinue reading “Robert Adams, controlling empty space…”
I keep my eye wide open all the time because your mine I walk the line as Johnny Cash once sang. From the start of my photography I have always liked my eyes to be pulled into a picture. The visual split second Journey. Where will it take you?
Adding Photography to music is something that really interests me. I was approached by Joel Cockrill to work on a project with my images to his music. I think the music changes the feel of work.
