IMAGES ABOUT THE ARTIST


ARTIST STATEMENT

My photographs explore landscape scenes and their resiliency. Often photographing buildings or other structures, they become metaphors for current events and their ability to cope. These blunt, nostalgic or inanimate subjects lead into a deeper story that continues to spark excitement. The viewer will feel a sense of curiosity as to their present place in life. Many of the scenes begin to tell a tale of lessons learned through the resilience of the landscape. Utilizing mapping, GPS tracking and psychogeographic techniques I explore the areas in between major cities looking for the links they share.

Influenced by artists like Walker Evans, Stephen Shore or the Bechers, my style is a mix between exploration and analysis. I’m driven by an instinctual sense of adventure, always prepared to explore but not afraid to wander. I look to speak about transition and an object's’ ability to endure through any situation. Often, though rooted in a technical proficiency, my exploration is instinctual, just like my photography. Depicting what is happening in the lives of people through devalued spaces, shows the strength and the objects ability to be resilient, as well as its ability to survive.
