Straddling the lines between photo document, abstract experimentation, and visual poetry, my work explores human-environmental relationships and photography’s role in how we navigate the physical and cultural landscape. The ebb and flow of nature, mesmeric quality of light, and a longing to feel connected to the natural world within the chaos of contemporary life are some thematic threads that run through my work. At the root of my practice is the medium of photography itself – its history as a tool for scientific inquiry and artistic expression and its unique relationship to the artist and viewer in interpreting experience. Driven by my love for materials and process, I set up scenarios that embrace the mystery of optics, element of chance, and happy accidents, looking for ways to work with the photographic medium that can speak to both its past as well as its future.
