Lives and works in Sebastopol, California
I am interested in questioning approaches towards photography, whether that's through presentation, how an image is constructed, or re-photography. I believe that for the medium to continue on, it needs to push ways of looking at and considering images; how they function in the 21st century.
These works ask if formal roles of photographs, as things that can only be displayed in rigid ways, are really working. Using the "Materiality" and "Object-ness" of photographs, its structure, to turn it into something new; outside of these constraints, asks even more impactful questions.
