Throughout my career I have worked on two main themes. In my signature portraiture of the male body I have been studying male corporeality, sexuality and identity. Sense and representation of landscape and place have also been my central interests. I have been looking at the ways perception and recognition work in our minds through visual representations.
In my auto-portraiture-based work I have taken a critical look into masculinity and femininity in maleness, showing highly ambiguous bodies with physical traits of both genders. I enjoy addressing and challenging masculine complacency and self-importance. The complexities of male self-conciousness and body image are a constant source of inspiration for me. The tension between the sense of vulnerability and expressions of strength in masculine cultures are under scrutiny in my work. I am especially interested in the gendered notion of heroism and the cultural icons of male heroes.
I have experimented extensively with the problematics of perception and representation both in my landscape work and in my auto-portraiture.
I also have addressed the form and shape of the traditional photograph. My photographic work has often appeared in such unconventional shapes as round, curved or elliptical. I have removed the backgrounds to produce paper doll -like framed images, or have face-mounted images on beveled glass.
My work often derives from and comments on both popular culture and history of art and photography.
I plan to further question my photographic work and to find new ways to address ideas and questions I am interested in. My interest in landscape as personal environment is still very strong. I have approached landscape/place/personal space/etc. as a wide concept of place of identity.
