My art is a study of reawakening, mining the familiar, and exposing the loss that takes part when a photo is made. I am interested in the collision between emotion and science that photography embodies. There is a certain truth and reality that one expects to see when looking at a photo, but the viewing experience can be unfamiliar. This fallacy is accentuated within my process, which concentrates on our attachment to the past and the removal that happens between image and subject when a photo is taken. I examine my family’s film negatives with a microscope and explore the grainy realm that is beneath the glass. The product is not a linear narrative; it meanders and curves back on itself to explore the inconsistency and steadfastness of memory and photography.
