I try to implement a classic sense of culture and beauty in my photographs to foster a spirit of timelessness. These images depict a boundary between humanity and the natural world, exploring complexities of anthropology; time, diet, relationships and sociology. I use traditional methods of photography to produce a distinct atmosphere within each image and preserve an integrity or detail, sharpness and realism.
