Informed by the impermanence of time, I see meaning and metaphor all around me and feverishly attempt to convey the hopelessness and wonder through the permanence of images.

A Country Boy Can’t Survive celebrates the great and terrible beauty of human existence amid the vulnerability of the universal, timeless uncertainty. Neither a document nor a solitary declaration; it is a communion of a variety emotions, instances and subjects, whose collective magnitude express a sense of place and intimacy. This place both real and remembered, is inhabited by cast of loved ones portraying themselves in a homemade myth.

These pictures espouse a world eternally vibrating with significance.
