about

My photography is a reflection and meditation on landscape, place, and meaning. The camera is a vehicle for self-expression, a medium that allows me to step outside myself and be present in the moment, focused on composition, light, and movement.

The main influences of my work are photographers from the "New Topographics" movement and writers from "Lost Generation." The protagonists of my stories are the empty main streets, abandoned gas stations, and weary travelers that I meet along the way. My work deals with deciphering the nostalgia from reality myth from fact. I seek to depict the uncertainty, isolation, desperation, and anxiety felt across the United States.
