My photographs represent dreams of a world without human beings, a futile longing for a time and a place that do not exist. I create a fantastical bubble through the use of copious artificial lighting and creating situations which are unnatural to the animals that I photograph.
The manipulations that I perform for the sake of the photograph are a mirror to mankind's actions in the world. Unlike the animals in nature, the human animal was unable to adapt to its surrounding, but rather attempted to change the surrounding instead. My exhibition may be unnatural, but this is our nature, and I have to learn to live with it.
