Many photographers have inspired me in the work that I do today and to name a few are: Francesca Woodman, Man Ray,
Marcel Duchamp and other Dada Movement photographers. I’am inspired by the simple concept of straight photography
and photographing Earth’s natural beauty for what is. The process of manipulating and enhancing photography is another
aspect that I strongly explore in order to enhance what the camera has captured for esthetic purposes. In some instances
no manipulation is done in order to maintain the integrity of the original image.
