My photographs are born from my desire to see; to meditate on intention and accident; to uncover the layers of experience within an object; to mingle inside and outside, solidly and fluidly; to play with fertile confusion; to be attentive to those moments when everyday reality becomes charged; and to respond to that charge with images that convey elusive but potent meanings. The subjects of my photographs become characters in a fictional narrative and are imbued with a history, and I am charged with their storytelling.
The content and style of my photographic work has grown and shifted to fluidly encompass a more contemporary scope of documentary photography consisting of portraits, landscapes, and still lifes. I shoot primarily in medium and large-format chromes which allows for a more deliberate, thoughtful and constructed image, as well as ensuring the color palette’s consistency. The choice to photograph on film reinforces the desire to create a tangible documentation of experience.
