The work and imagery that I pursue in photography uses sexuality as a metaphor. I am making photographs that are autobiographical, yet which many viewers find meaningful. I am seeking to express the need gay men often feel to create a sense of identity, within one’s self and culture. Many find their lives reflected in this work in ways that are generally not shown in artwork or the media.
