These portraits explore the fluid spaces of gender and our connection with the non-human world (both organic and synthetic) from a range of masculine-identifying perspectives. My hypothesis is that there is not one gender or world without the other, without flow between these polarities.
Krista McCuish explores her fascination with ice using close up details and visual metaphor, to interpret its influence on our winter psyche.
Cuba from the Street
During an intense 10 day trip, I photographed all day the people and places I saw on the streets of both Old Havana and Trinidad, Cuba. This show is comprised of the most representative of what I caught during that time.

Far Away is part of a series entitled Abandoned, which examines the arrogance and futility of building a house in front of the sand dunes on a beautiful ocean beach. The forces of Nature won as the house was eventually abandoned as it stood within the high water mark. For years, it was an eyesore and served as a cautionary tale of the folly of such building practices.
Over the years, my interests have primarily centered on creating landscape and botanical images with an occasional venture into architectural and street photography. In many of my photographs I strive to evoke an emotion, raise an uncertainty or create a sense of movement either by isolating key elements or by blurring the subject matter. My work has been exhibited in over 125 shows in 17 states and in Spain, Turkey, and Greece. To me, a photograph has so much more value when it is shared with others. My work has appeared in 11 publications and received 18 awards in the past ten years.
