“If I want my work to appear otherworldly or beyond replication it is because I want to describe things that I feel are. The only things to transcend replication are the indescribable instances of true beauty and love, present in each human soul. Knowing this, artists can only hope that their work becomes a reminder and a shell-like vehicle for these elusive, exquisite and transient energies. I just happen to like beautiful shells. There’s no magic but love.”

   

his creation is my inspiration.

Joy is beautiful. Inside and out. You can definitely tell her beauty by the photographs she makes. I've been inspired by her for many years. She's one of the people who made me want to start photographing.

Joy is and always has been an inspiration. Each time I shoot film, I hope it comes out as good as hers. I wish to capture all the same beauty and honesty that she sees.
