Although I primarily begin a project by making and collecting photographs of the environments I wish to study, speculative worlds and universes often emerge through the addition of various mediums including sculpture, drawing, painting, and printmaking. For many of my projects I utilize both 8" x 10" and 7" x 17" analog view cameras while carrying a digital camera with me at all times as my "sketch book." I continue to use both black and white and color films…two different languages that seem to have an never-ending conversation with each other.
Photography has continued to serve as the foundation to which I return when I begin a new investigation. What results is a perpetual dialectic between my real surroundings a re-envisioned environments.
