PERSONAL WORK

The following are samples of my personal photographic work. The first 10 images are from my series, A House, A Home. The second 10 images are from the series, Keystones. Each image is labeled accordingly with title, dimensions, media, and date of creation.  Statements for each series can be found before the start of the images. Thank you for your time and consideration. 

 

A HOUSE, A HOME

In the series, A House, A Home, I isolate ubiquitous objects and photograph them on colorful background as a way to begin investigating the traditions of domestic American life. My interventions, color palette and commercial style of photographic capture re-contextualize the objects as a way to challenge conventional domesticity and to pose questions about conformity, consumption, and convenience as staples of our American popular culture. With the images, I hope to provide a space for the viewer to bring her or his own history and ideas to the dialogue. Lastly, by transforming the objects into large-scale photographic prints, I suggest the potential for rebirth as a commodity in a vastly different market.

KEYSTONES

Over the last few years, I've become increasingly interested in how different facets of my upbringing and background manifest in my personality. As I continue to live relatively far from where I grew up, the cultural and vernacular differences of each region become more apparent. With distance from the people and places that have heavily influenced my identity, I find myself drawn to the once familiar. In this series I revisit places of personal significance, and attempt to capture the seemingly banal environments with a newfound appreciation, only making my transition from local to tourist more apparent.
