“Vicissitude”

1.  The quality of being changeable; mutablility regarded as a natural process or tendancy in human affairs.
2.  Changes in circumstances; uncertainties or variations of fortune or outcome.

As a photographer, I almost never shoot people.  It just doesn’t work for me.  By contrast, my digital work is almost completely people-centric. There’s something about being able to manipulate the colors, backgrounds, depth and details, that make it possible for me to bring out alternatives to what a photograph might otherwise depict.

What I have attempted to achieve in this style, is to span the broad range of human emotion, to show a sliver of that which we as people are capable of feeling, and doing – from innocence to corruption.

The process:  Nearly all of these pieces started off as photographs.  They were then digitally painted, flattened, manipulated, and finally converted into vector art.
