“Paperback” is a body of work which recreates sleaze paperback covers from the 1950’s and 1960’s as photographic stills. Photographs that lead to the illustrious worlds of sleaze, booze and misbehavior typical of under-the-counter smut novels of a counter culture generation. ‘I have taken my love of collaboration, making stuff, composition and recreated the elaborate tableaux's, salacious titles and the hysterical extremism of depicted gender roles from popular works of low literature’ I live to make images. I command the camera to make images that are a careful construction of premeditated imagery, visual vignettes filled with symbols, plots, props and visual puns, as well as real people and events captured to entertain.
