I confront the overlapping ideas of American identity, authenticity, and photography’s critical role in framing and constructing our understanding of reality.
I’m inspired by a more expansive portraiture of bodies marked with time, experience, story, loss, power, beauty and substance all rolled into one.
I investigate the fluidity of identity (or as Marx would put it: Gattungswesen) in relation to society.
I use photography to abstract objects and landscapes of historical significance in an attempt to change the way those objects and landscapes are perceived.
