This is the time of year for reflection. I’m interested in quietly revealing my presence as the photographer by way of reflection on a surface. Lately I’ve also been interested in fracturing the space of a two-dimensional image into multiple layers, compressing a lot of visual information into the limited space within a frame.
I knew that the windows that windows that Eiotown, https://www.eiotown.com/bio.html, created for Out of the Closet in West Hollywood would be amazing. And sure enough, the displays this year are rich with whimsy and mystery.

My creative process for personal work is intuitive. There is an idea of what I hope to achieve, but no pre-visualization. Until I see the images in post production, I don’t really know what I have. Twenty-six technically correct photos were taken. The keeper was the first one. Looking at the other shots instructed me about what wasn’t working.
Wishing you all the best during the holidays and beyond, however you celebrate and reflect upon the season.
