About the author

My photographic collages embody movement of time, experience, memory and spatial relationships as variables captured in the scene. I begin all collages with a sketch. Then, I rotate the camera to achieve the different angles and layer each photo with my observance of a place, during different times of the day or year to create a dynamic scene. When you see a change in the tone from one photo to the other, it’s the result of a different time that I was at the location. I believe these multiple layers of variables engage the viewer’s eyes and body allowing you to experience the poetics of space, even allowing the scene to pull the viewer in. I am drawn to capture ordinary and everyday occurrences from my DC neighborhood, like Rush Hour or Cherry Blossoms to the Inaugural Celebration while travels take me to New York, Chicago and Paris, France.
