Digital Images

A depiction of a thing is not that thing, it is a depiction.

The images of nudes presented here appear, as a matter of style, to be photographic. But they are photographs of no people who exist in the world; they do not depict the appearance of living, human, models in the sense that traditional photographs do. The images here are digital constructed fictions.

It is a fact of living in our culture that images in the media are very often the original source of information and experience for us. Images in proliferation are signs without referents; those images are not reflections of things in the world nor are they depictions of things in the world. They are hyperreal inventions whose characteristics are produced by the media and the media’s manipulators. They are my original source material, my subjects.
