Points

With my recent work I am focusing on how photography contains and specifies unique perspectives, drawing attention towards splendor and the uncanny. Traveling in search of highly aestheticized situations and objects, I am intrigued by that which is looked at in specific sub culture communities. Ranging from obscure animal competitions to agricultural contests, notions of winning, standardization, and the “best” provide a complex analysis of subjective realities. The pictures extend this process of study, further exalting the subjects.
