The Solo Project


The Solo Project

The Solo Project came about as a form of catharsis while I was deployed to Afghanistan for my final time. A friend of mine had been killed by a traitorous Afghan policeman, and I was looking for an outlet to express how it effected me. Solo was my answer. These pictures are all selfies, and every one is black and white.

The Hollow Man Project

The Hollow Man Project was a collaboration between me and my good friend Spencer Polwort of Hurtingman Studios. We were bot deployed in Afghanistan together and used this project as a much-needed distraction. Spencer was the man in the mask, and I was the photographer and editor. I don't remember which of us came up with the idea, but we applied quotes from T.S. Eliot's The Hollow Men to each of the pictures.

Between the desire, And the spasm, Between the potency, And the existence, Between the essence, And the descent, Falls the Shadow

Let me be no nearer, In death's dream kingdom, Let me also wear, Such deliberate disguises, Rat's coat, crowskin, crossed staves, In a field, Behaving as the wind behaves, No nearer-- Not that final meeting, In the twilight kingdom

In the last of meeting places, We grope together, And avoid speech, Gathered on this beach of the tumid river

Is it like this, In death's other kingdom, Walking alone,At the hour when we are, Trembling with tenderness,Lips that would kiss, Form prayers of broken stone

Between the idea, And the reality, Between the motion, And the act, Falls the shadow, For thine is the kingdom

Eyes I dare not meet in dreams, In death's dream kingdom, These do not appear; There, the eyes are, Sunlight on a broken column, There, is a tree swinging, And the voices are, In the wind's singing, More distant and more solemn, Than a fading star

This is the dead land, This is cactus land, Here the stone images, Are raised, here they receive, The supplication of a dead man's hand, Under the twinkle of a fading star

After a long time of shooting almost exclusively film cameras, I wanted to get back into shooting digital so I could keep my digital workflow skills up to date. The Empty Chair Project was my answer. The plan was to shoot pictures of my empty director's chair in as many places as I should possibly find, and to do so only using digital cameras. This means that I could use my D800, my Lumix DMC-GH4, or even my iPhone. I would then take each shot into Photoshop and play with it before posting.

In April 2017, I traveled to Southeast Asia with my Dad, my sister, my nephew, Dad's business partner, and her kids. We spent about two weeks wandering Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam.
