My projects chronicle the relationship and parallels between the natural and man made environment.There is a powerful dynamic between these two forces that l like to explore. Sculptures introduce an added dimension to the rhythm and pace of the places portrayed. They strengthen the mystery and ambiguity that is present within the land, and the beauty and chaos that is always in flux.
Chance and serendipity has always played an important role in how I work. My curiosity to pay attention to everything surrounding me has taken me to embrace the land in a non linear way. By breaking up spaces and light in multiple ways, i am shifting both my perception and perspective in how i remember my trips.
By using a primitive camera with a manual winder, l am able to compose my narratives in camera by shooting continuous frames on one strip of film with no interruption. The constructed images reflect what takes place in nature, not as a singular image but a cinematic journey.
I utilize small platinum/palladium contact prints for their intimacy and rich tonalities, as well as enlarged archival pigment prints to allow the viewer to enter into the landscape.
