An unequivocal emphasis on relationship connects my work as an artist, photographer, and storyteller. In my practice I consciously engender direct participation and allow individual response to shape the process and outcome. I utilizes video and photography, and apply socially engaged form and theory to create visual art where collaboration, co-authorship and ethical-representation is primary. My work explores the nuance and complexity of personal identity and its relationship to family, community and culture. I seek to build empathy and inspire intimacy, introspection and reflection.
My photographs aim to reveal our relationship to each other, reflected through a single moment caught in time. Photography has taught me to meet my subjects as they are and explore the space between us, as full or empty as it may be. In important ways, even my landscape photography is about humanity and strives to bring awareness to the way in which humans influence the natural and constructed world.
