artist statement
As we have become accustomed to surrendering our privacy to the world in cyber-space, I am very intrigued that physical space remains sacred. I wish to illuminate that sacredness by honoring those physical spaces with my photography. My images are candid and try to capture raw and honest spaces. I am attracted to the beauty of how things simply are; I document them because I want to share that awareness with others.

How do we define space? We measure, divide, share, defend, and decorate it. My work compares and conjoins visual representations of the human tendency to claim and covet space, by documenting how humans exhibit their own spaces, how they regard spaces that are foreign to them, and how I, as a photographer, reveal my own level of familiarity or connectedness with the spaces I am documenting.
