While my work can be categorized as traditional photography, I am drawn to conceptual projects that land visually on the spectrum of abstraction and narrative minimalism. I base my process on the premise that the past cannot be removed from the present and that history exists within our landscapes, living matter, objects, and interior spaces. Congruently, my focus and subject matter are color, light, and the composition of competing shapes. I seek to make work that is about the act of pushing light through a lens and burning an image onto film, and about the dynamic and minute events that occur only within the confines of this medium.
