About the work available at Transistor
"Urban Abstracts" is a series of photographs documenting my personal reflection of the urban landscape. I strive to capture the real energy and raw beauty of the city in sometimes “not so typical” light. I have a very honest style, and where I take thoughtful pause in places to grasp uncommon perspectives, I often realize through my imagery that I am exploring the natural essence of what captivates us about these structures and locations. The photos featured here mainly reflect my love of classic (sometimes hidden) Chicago architecture.
