Verisimilitude photography is an exploration of the difference between realism and real. It expands the established perception of a photograph as flat and bounded by four sides. By adding a dimensional quality, verisimilitude photographs can appear to be identical to their subject.  
The concept of framing is also expanded. In common with the historical role of the frame, verisimilitude frames protect and enhance display but also support the push from realism to real. 
I want to make photographs that are so real they are mistaken for the objects they depict.
