Statement


I believe in the power of perspective. In my work, I use practical effects to touch on how our perspective on life affects our perception, influencing the lives we lead. My goal is to create photographs that dabble between abstract truths and concrete reality. By drawing connections between illusions of realism and the subjectivity of human experience, my work lingers between daylight and daydream. 

Avoiding heavy post-processing techniques, I construct my photographs through carefully constructed sets. I incorporate drawing, painting, and stage design into my photography to introduce tricky visuals into my photographs. Owing to the flatness of the photograph, along with its accuracy in capturing the likeness of reality, I am able to hide the trick to my illusions within plain view.
