I was born into a military family and grew up all over the world. Snapshots were one of the few ways Ihad to remember the details that made up my life in the last town or base — so I took pictures incessantly and spent many afternoons cataloguing them. I headed to New York City for college where she received a BA in Journalism and Politics at New York University. After a career in television news shooting 30 frames a second, I decided to concentrate on one frame at a time and spent a year studying photography at Stanford University.
In my work, I let the subject matter determine what the series will look like. But my work is about just one thing. My pictures visualize psychological states; the internal weather that storms though each of us. RUNNING depicted the flight or flight response. PANIC BEACH upends the viewer as panic attacks do. FANTASY LIFE is about what it looks like to try to touch greatness. And this project, SURFACE TENSION, foregrounds the anxiety we navigate in the struggle to adapt to technological domination.
