My Blue Wave  (1 of 16)
A complete re-imagining of the tarot deck: 79 photographs and text drawn from over 20 years of work
and my own Major Arcana, suits, and court cards. Includes an interactive Celtic Cross spread.
A cloud forest in fading, late afternoon light. A mountain once buried, unborn beneath the sea.
Two figures unseen, hand in hand, dreaming through the branches and the mist.
Figures dance along the water's edge. The sun doesn't set, but dissolves high above the tree line,
lost in polluted orange air. Nightfall finds us blinded by streetlights, chasing an elusive moon.
Volatile images, composed sight unseen: poetic and grotesque, carnal and discarnate.
A fever dream of fleeting, nocturnal figures and luminous streets.
A romance of camera, car, and momentum. The overlooked, often inaccessible spaces between home and elsewhere.
Roadside landscapes shot through my favorite lens: the marred windows of cars in motion.
