Abstract/Artist's Statement

I am fascinated by the way the presence of light can suggest a complex and mysterious interior realm by merely touching the surfaces of people and things. The photographic still seems to stop time or slow time down, like holding one's breath. My subjects are the familiar, the domestic: myself, my friends, my family at home, in rooms, in cars. These are private lives, private places.

With Breathing In I trace my perception of the duality of human emotion and thought and physical landscapes. I try to capture a subjective feeling tone reflected in the ordinary, and explore the interplay of the individual and the stuff of the world. In addition to my still photographs I have used video to record short mundane events, which I call moving stills. I'm interested in conveying a heightened sense of awareness through observance of everyday life.
