Artist Statement

My photographic work often references landscape and geography while exploring ideas of memory, narrative, will and consequence. I work both factually with what I find in the landscape and through small interventions.

When I photograph, I often feel as if I am travelling to some in-between space. There I find a gap full of anomalies where certitude is outweighed by mutability and possibility. I am using traditional film stock and therefore must wait for my results. For now, I prefer to see this as a kind of alchemy. This magic making suits my project.
