HAMMER: a tool that delivers a blow to another object.

My work examines multiple systems that explore how identity is constructed and catalogued. Focusing primarily on masculine archetypes, I meet men and we establish a working relationship. They let me into their home and workspace, granting me access to their objects, images, and history. Giving their belongings the parameters of an archive, I filter and arrange items into compositions to be photographed. My work is designed to address the complexities around narrative, reference, and faith.
