"In 2000, I was hired to photograph art for Centaur Art Galleries in Las Vegas where I worked for the following 12 years. I was initially provided with a Kodak digital camera, just a notch above a Fischer-Price model. I refused to use it. I was later provided with a better camera, but it was still a consumer-grade point-and-shoot. For these images, I used my own camera, which wasn't much better than the toys the company provided. I had zero budget for lighting, so to compensate for poor equipment, I spent a lot of time editing the images. My goal was to make my photos look as close to the art as possible. Although they're not particularly impressive photographs, I include them here because I'm happy with the accuracy. They never compared to the original art, although I did have some people tell me they were better than the art. That's when I knew I had failed."
