    Artist Statement

    "Homage to 'Girl with the Pearl Earring' is part of a continuing series. The original inspiration for this series was drawn from my admiration of the lighting in Renaissance paintings. For Almost two centuries 'Is photography art?' has been questioned. In 1853 one member of the Photographic Society in London complained that photography was 'too literal to compete with works of art' because it was unable to 'elevate the imagination'. This work is meant to evoke conversation on the topic, empowering photography as art, while mirroring images many consider great art."
