Basic Black

“Life is like a good black and white photograph, there's black, there's white, and lots of shades in between.” - Karl Heiner

My style is eclectic, and difficult for me to describe. It's personal, and emotional. I shoot what i feel not what i see. For me, it comes down to this: The moment just before pressing the shutter. I live for that moment, i'm lost in that moment. For me, photography is not about bringing things into focus but blurring the line between what is and is not real ... because the truth lies somewhere in between.
