Resume

My work seeks to challenges the notion that photography represents the complete truth of a given situation. It is instead, a medium made up of an amalgam of truth and fiction, which once photographed, reveal more about society than about the original subject. Each image contains a figment of a past moment that stays with us only through the evidence of its photograph. ‘This thing, was present in this space, at this time,’ are the only facts that an image can truly claim to hold. What happened before, after, or outside of each frame is obscured by the act of image making, an act that ignores the realties and complexities of its real-life original.
