Most of us have all felt in one time or another, a bone chilling coldness that stings to our core. With nothing close to escape from the cold we face it willingly, doubtingly, or unexpectedly. I wanted to convey that same feeling as seen through my own eyes. I desired to illustrate this mood and leave the audience feeling a little colder inside and isolated after viewing the image.

Take A Stand
An abused girl takes a bath to try to wash away the memories of violent incidents in her past. The shock and awe of the photo is meant to inspire people to take a stand against all types of physical abuse.
This photo was created through manipulation in Photoshop.

Five kids, one nightmare. I spend a lot of time nannying and babysitting although, after looking at this picture, I couldn't tell you why. The kids (primates) were yelling and screaming in the basement (their natural habitat) for a few minutes before I decided to go down and check it out. Shocked at the mere destruction, I set up some lights, picked a lead, and told them to go wild. Even the banana peel was picked up spontaneously. I was cut off after a few minutes because I received a few complaints about the screaming. The result was a series of images that may cause even the toughest of babysitters to make a run for the door - I combined two to get this result.
