Rise and Fall
I am drawn to the possibilities of uncertainty. My photographs act as an obsessive record of the small moments that are often hidden in the banality of everyday life. Traveling to cities, small towns and rural stretches, I try to find those detours, dead ends and deserted streets where the landscape becomes unpredictable. I’m attracted to the instability of these spaces. Seeking evidence of the constant flux and change in our surroundings, my work attempts to sort and coalesce this loose drifting material of life.
