'Fallen Princesses' place fairy tale characters in modern day scenarios.. The princess is placed in an environment that articulates her conflict. "The happily ever after," is replaced with a realistic outcome and addresses current issues.

I first saw the Snow White photo on Etc. I thought it was clever and hilarious! After looking through the rest them, I felt sort of sad. They are less funny and more disturbing then I had initially thought.

I guess even grown-ups still want to believe in fairy tales.

'Trackrecord’ began with my interest in gambling in general and turned into what I have termed as my photo anthropological quest. At first I wanted to visually document today’s ‘instant gratification’ society that prays off of those who crave immediate contentment. I specifically related with this phenomenon, as I am prone to the excitement it offers. My plan was to cover bingo halls, casinos, the track, pool halls, the Internet and anywhere else that gamblers congregate.

When I discovered the Trackback project on the photographers website I felt happy again. I used to think that portraiture meant posed Sears photos and huge wedding dress shots, yikes!

I think that these are amazing! Who are these people? Aren't you curious what their stories are?
