Upstart Modern is fine art photography that seems to cast aside all the "rules," forsaking the old forms while seeking new approaches with which to examine an ever changing world and to explore that which often goes unobserved.

There is creativity and there is CREATIVITY. The first is that general sort of creative endeavor— That creativity with which I work on my images. CREATIVITY, on the other hand, is that creativity which knows no boundaries, follows no rules, and leads the artist on a merry wander through this or that expression of an image— deviant, upstart expressions all!

I invite you to join me as I let CREATIVITY take me on her merry jaunt as I seek to explore that which goes unobserved in our ever-changing world. There are reflections, layers, graphic art pieces, light-paintings, and photo-noir images mixed throughout the collection.

"Apocalypse"

"House of Horrors"
"This image is both foreboding and graphic. It was created to be part of "House of Horrors," a photo-series on child abuse. The setting for the shot was a "flea market" full of doll heads horrifically arranged. So much so, that for most images all I had to do was to manipulate the highlights, shadows, and tones. Frankly the shop gave me an eerie feeling, which hopefully I captured, along with the horror of child abuse, in the images.
