“As an artist I believe it is a duty to find new and unexplored ways to express a subject. With that in mind, I made it a mission to find a way to express my inner thoughts, opinions and moods in a way that was my own. After two years of obsessive experimentation, I found a new unique technique of expression which is pure photography (not computer created). I have given my images the obscure dream-like quality of the inner self that needs more than a quick glance to interpret and although I hesitantly put my work in the genre of abstract, I have a clear vision of what each photo will represent from thought to creation”. – Taylor Jorjorian

” Portraiture in the past has been regarded as a documentation of a person but for me it is a documentation of the encounter between myself and the subject. It is not meant to reveal them, nor is it meant to subject them to an X-ray; it is a departure from that. I am more interested in the alchemical reaction that occurs when elements are brought together in a space. ” – Steven Klein
