Artist Statement My interest in photography lies principally in exploring moments that are undefined. I am fascinated when a dialog emerges from what appears to be the simplest of moments from states of uncertainty and transience. A raw and unpretentious moment can reveal complexities, evoke imagined histories, and hidden truths.
