“Making photographs serves as a medium to express my interest in the unexpected and density of relationships that we share with others and our built and natural environment. Through the use of the photographic frame, I explore the tenuous nature of looking and seeing, hoping to continuously expand the questions that it can arouse.

By framing and capturing these environments, I materialize my own experiences with the aim of expressing a curiosity in a larger collective unconscious. I am often looking for images I have seen previously and hope to recreate in my ongoing photographic practice – with the goal of arousing further interest and careful looking and framing in the process.”
