Collider Collective

stand-alone moments coalescing into a greater whole

   Some photos carry entire narratives all by themselves, while others team up to tell a story. The photos herein are stand-alone shots colliding with one another to form a new combined whole that thrives in a communal frame and color space.  

The lighting, colors and frames of these photos work together to create a picture that expresses more than the sum of its parts.

"[...] an aesthetic harmony that exists across individual moments and transcends the original nature of one alone."

By uniting scenes, situations, people and places a new message is synthesized; its essence is an aesthetic harmony that exists across individual moments and transcends the original nature of one alone.

When the union is healthy and harmonic, the individual is not lost in the collective, but embraced by it. The coexistence is an opportunity for growth, a new perspective and completeness.
