My photography has shifted from expressive artistic representation to documentary and geographical photography. I have posted the work on Google Earth and has been viewed over 60,000,000 times.

My short subject films have been internationally broadcasted in several countries including France, England, Spain, Italy, USA, and Canada.

The function of art is to evoke an emotional or intellectual response in the viewer. My goal as an artist has always been to give the viewer something to react to emotionally. Granted, there are easy ways to create emotion in one's work. Shocking the viewer is the easiest way to create an emotion. I have always been looking for ways to invite the viewer to find more than just the obvious. I want them to experience something different each time they view my work.
Wescover creator since 2017
