Photography art by Jordan Thomas

Creativity has been crucial to my well-being.  When I’m manic I’m able to channel my racing thoughts and flight of ideas into my art and turn a negative into a positive. I also suffer from crippling depression at times which makes it impossible to do much of anything, but I’m proud of the work that I’ve been able to create despite my challenges.

My process begins with my camera, out in nature. When photographing I look for interesting shapes and strong images

This search is a distraction from my suffering and brings me peace.  I then alter my images, using Photoshop.  I intensify the colors and try to make the finished work even more profound.   It makes me feel powerful to be able to alter the images to my own vision.
