Even In Alleys
For this series, I search the borders between personal and public space to create images that are at once familiar and profound. Each image employs its own language and logic to tell a story, not about the relationship of objects in reality, but of understanding, feeling, and the essential joy of looking. While everything you see is as it was in front of the camera, I work diligently with composition and subtle adjustments to create an even balance between ordinary & majestic, organic & geometric, recognizable & confounding, tangible & implied. By resolving every element, the mundane is elevated to something worthy of contemplation. The structural ambiguity in the images slows down the process of viewing. My goal is that as the initial disruption fades, rewarding exploration will continue and a relationship between the image and viewer develops.
