In Arrangements

“In Arrangements I seek out abstractions of the real world. While influenced by the ever evolving language of the image, I aim to add to the conversation by reacting to the world around me. This is work is an act of call and response with the environments, objects, and moments I am witness to. Although many of these moments captured by my camera are naturally occurring, I also take liberties in showing my hand in the work. Much like the visual vocabulary of the photograph, Arrangements has been a constant transformation.”
