think outside of the box

This collection of images illustrate wonderfully the creative direction I am moving toward in my portrait photography.
I want to make images that will stand the test of time, to be part of a families history and an Objet d’art that will be enjoyed on a daily basis.

I love this definition: “In fine art, a work of art (or artwork or work) is a creation, such as a song, book, film, print, sculpture or a painting, that has been made in order to be a thing of beauty in itself or a symbolic statement of meaning, rather than having a practical function.”

Refrigerator art is great but there has to be more......
