LA is a melting pot of people, personalities, and dreams.

Religious conflicts, personal introspection and identity confusions have all been prevalent in my personal journey.

The conjugating of imaginary perspectives and graphic passages contribute to the mocked and exaggerated realities this city has to offer.

LA Odyssey is a journey, traveled by juxtaposing the obscure and the light, the conventional to the strange and out of place.  Portraying in part a glimpse into the personal conflicts that I have run up against in my life as well as day-to-day occurrences while living in LA.

Nudity represents liberation and a portrayal of the body in it's true organic state.  At the end of the day no one is anyone without a face.  The deliberate obstruction of the facial features is an integral part of the series that attempts to convey an abstract representation of the female and male bodies.  The various scenes shown in the photography seek to impart people's fixation with identifying themselves by means of materialism.
