The subject matter of these photographs reveals fashionable apparel displayed in show windows and the random reflections on the panes of glass separating the viewer and the natural elements from the display area. The display message conveys class, culture, and status, enhanced through aesthetic design aimed at engaging the attention of pedestrian or vehicle passengers.

     I focus on a portion of a window display, as my starting point, with the objective to fuse the subject matter and window reflections as essential ingredients of a new, personal abstraction.  My intent is to transform a portion of reality into a new and meaningful message or metaphor. I offer the viewer the opportunity to form a “poetic” vision from my selection of the unified visual elements revealed on the picture plane.
