Lives and works in Rochester, New York
In "Epilogue to Resonance", I was responding to the collective events contained within the early part of 2020. It was not one thing, but the emotions that encapsulated my being. My photographs are an extension and embodiment of myself. The heartbeat in the stillness, the reverberation of memory and time that we are forced to face in the presence of this collective anxiety. The mimicry of memory, and the melancholy of the pervading epidemic as we become still.
