Mattina Renee Hickox, Wisconsin Member Since December 2010 Artist Statement Photography; It has always been my passion. My life, my way of expressing myself. Others paint, others draw, others create with words. I create with photographs. I take what I see and I turn it into something abstract, something different. I take the simplest object, and turn it into an abstract form. My camera is my weapon, my subject is my prey. Viewing the world through the lens of a camera puts everything into a completely different perspective.
